- Ole Solskjaer has been tipped by Conor McGregor to be appointed as Man United permanent coach this summer
- The 30-year-old UFC star believes Solskjaer has done well at Old Trafford since he replaced Jose Mourinho
- Solskjaer and his wards will face Spanish side Barcelona in the quarterfinal of the Champions League
Mixed martial artist Conor McGregor has stated that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be appointed as Manchester United permanent manager when the ongoing season comes to an end.
Solskjaer took over at Old Trafford from Jose Mourinho in December 2018, and ever since then, Manchester United have only lost three games under the Norwegian.
And 30-year-old UFC star who has been Manchester United fan since childhood is convinced that Solskjaer has what it takes to be given a full time job at Old Trafford.
''Ole Gunnar is a special man! I think he's done an incredible job with United. They have to give him the job permanently.
''You can feel the pride and passion he has for the club and its history, and see the players honored to wear the Red Devils crest under him. He's really got the players performing,'' he told FIFA.
Manchester United are currently occupying fifth position on the Premier League standings with 58 points after 38 games played.
The Red Devils are also in the quarterfinal of 2018/19 Champions League where they will face Spanish giants Barcelona in April.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Premier League giants Manchester United appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjær as their new manager until the end of the ongoing 2018/19 Premier League season.
The 45-year-old Norwegian football manager replaced former manager Jose Mourinho who was thrown out of the club because of poor results.
He was joined by Mike Phelan as first-team coach, together with Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna this season at Old Trafford.
