London, Jul (EFE).- Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer extended his contract until 2024 with an optional extra year, the Premier League club announced on Saturday.
Despite criticism over the team’s poor performance last season, the Red Devils finished the 2020/2021 Premier League second, behind cross-city rival Manchester City, and were the Europa League runner-ups.
The Norwegian manager initially took the helm as an interim coach in December 2018 to replace Jose Mourinho, but then signed a long-term contract.
“Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract,” Solskjaer said in a statement.
“It is an exciting time for Manchester United, we have built a squad with a good balance of youth and experienced players that are hungry for success,” he added.
The announcement comes a day after the signing of British young midfielder Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. EFE
