Manchester United are reportedly set to announce Ole Gunnar as boss on half former manager Mourinho’s pay.
Ole Gunnar’s huge success in charge so far has convinced United chiefs to give him the job on a full-time base.
Solskjaer is set to be confirmed as United’s permanent boss on an annual salary of £7.5million a half of Mourinho’s £15m-a-year.
The Red devils historic 3-1 Champions League win away to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, which put them through to the last eight despite losing the first leg 2-0, confirmed the view of the Old Trafford board that Solskjaer is the man to lead them long-term.
Reacting to the decision, full-back Luke Shaw said;
“”We all love Ole and we love the job he’s done so far. I don’t think I need to say much after all these results, it looks certain [Solskjaer will get the job].
”We’re enjoying everything that’s going on at the moment and the results have shown that.
”That’s nine away wins in a row now and that shows what Ole and his staff have done. Long may that continue.
”It sums up what the mood is like in the camp now and that’s a big plus for the boss and what he’s done in this period of time and how much he’s changed things around. We’ve got so much more to look forward to.”
With just one defeat in 17 games and nine straight away wins, including victories at Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG, Solskjaer has pushed Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, his only rival for the Old Trafford hot-seat, out of the frame.
The 46-year-old Norwegian is willing to accept a far less lucrative package than Mourinho to land his dream job of managing United full-time.
