Bookmakers pay out on Solskjaer staying at Old Trafford after the summer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a shoo-in to be appointed as permanent Manchester United manager this summer

Manchester United have enjoyed an amazing run of form since the departure of Jose Mourinho and the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as his temporary replacement, however the most impressive result came in the Champions League on Wednesday evening when the Red Devils stages a tremendous fightback against PSG to secure for themselves a place in the semi-finals of the competition. The Red Devils looked set to be dumped out of the tournament following a 2-0 defeat at home to the French champions, however Romelu Lukaku scored a first-half brace in the French capital and Marcus Rashford kept his cool when scoring from the penalty spot in the dying seconds of the game to give United a 3-1 win.

The away-goal rule means that Solskjaer’s men go through to the next round of the tournament and the Norwegian boss boosted his chances of managing the Red Devils on a permanent basis by masterminding this shock fightback. This is certainly the belief  of the leading bookmakers who are starting to pay out on Solskjaer being in charge on the first day of 2019/20, his odds on being appointed permanent boss shortening from 33/1 all the way to just 1/8 during his relatively brief spell in charge.

Following United’s amazing run under Solskjaer, it would be impossible for the board to hand the job to somebody else and as such the bookies have now closed the book on the Norwegian staying put at Old Trafford.
