Manchester United sack manager Jose Mourinho

While the appointment of Solskjaer as interim manager is not yet official, United quickly deleted a post on the club's website announcing the 45-year-old as caretaker, and the Norweigan was also congratulated on the role by his country's prime minister Erna Solberg - a tweet that vanished shortly after being published.

Solskjaer's staff will be comprised of first-team coach Mike Phelan and Mourinho holdovers Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna, per the statement.

"Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles", Woodward said.

"We are confident they will unite the players and the fans as we head into the second half of the season", he added.

However, Solskjaer would return to Molde, where he would re-build his managerial career, and he is now bidding to make an instant impact back at Old Trafford.

United sacked Mourinho on Tuesday morning after suffering their worst ever start to a Premier League season.
