Solskjaer has more than lifted the doom and gloom that Jose Mourinho brought to Old Trafford, winning 14 of his 19 games in all competitions.

That includes wins at Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal and, most famously, PSG in the Champions League after that unbelievable night in Paris.

United have gone from no-hopers in the race for the top four to genuine contenders, sitting just two points behind Arsenal and three behind Spurs.

“From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club,”said Solskjær.

“It was an honour to be a Manchester United player, and then to start my coaching career here.

“The last few months have been a fantastic experience and I want to thank all of the coaches, players and staff for the work we’ve done so far.

“This is the job that I always dreamed of doing and I’m beyond excited to have the chance to lead the club long-term and hopefully deliver the continued success that our amazing fans deserve.”

Spurs fans will also be letting out a huge sigh of relief…
