Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived at Carrington on Thursday morning ahead of his first training session as caretaker manager of Manchester United.

Solskjaer landed in England on Wednesday evening after being confirmed as manager until the end of the season, following the sacking of former boss Jose Mourinho.

The former striker, who spent 11 seasons at Old Trafford during his playing career, returns to the club after a spell in charge of Norwegian side Molde.

Solskjaer arrives at United with the club sixth in the Premier League – 19 points behind league leaders Liverpool and 11 points adrift of the Champions League places.

However, Solskjaer is looking forward to the challenge on offer at Old Trafford.

“Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role,” said Solskjaer, who scored the winning goal in their Champions League final victory in 1999.

“I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club.”

Solskjaer will run the first-team while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new full-time manager, with Mauricio Pochettino, Zinedine Zidane and Laurent Blanc all linked with the role.

Sky sources understand United paid £1.8m to loan Solskjaer from Molde until the end of the season and it will cost the Premier League club an additional £7.2m in order to make the arrangement permanent next summer.
