Following on from the club's announcement on Tuesday morning that Jose Mourinho had left the club with immediate effect (more on that here), a video was posted on the club's official website referring to the striker as "our interim manager".

That post was then deleted later on Tuesday night.

Solskjaer has previously spent 11 years at United as a player, including a career highlight: scoring in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich to seal the treble in 1999.

He also spent some time as the team's reserve coach, before leaving to take over as manager for Molde FK in Norway.

A full statement is expected to be made at some point on Wednesday, so watch this space...
