'Solskjaer deserved even being King of Norway' - Neville

Sport A- A A+

Manchester United’s hierarchy should confirm interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as permanent manager this month instead of waiting until the end of the season, former club captain Gary Neville has said.

The Norwegian helped United pull off one of the greatest comebacks in the competition’s history as his side sealed a dramatic 3-1 win in Paris to reach the quarter-finals on away goals despite losing the first leg 2-0.

Neville made his comments before kickoff, citing former United striker Solskjaer’s stellar record as interim boss, which now stands at 14 victories from 17 games in all competitions.

“The form guide says it all,” the former defender told Norwegian broadcaster Viasport. “I’ll be surprised if Solskjaer is not awarded the job during the international break (in March).

“The performances are very good,” Neville said. “The fans are loving it. It’s been a sensational three months and I think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will get given the job.

“He’ll probably be the King of Norway, the President of Norway, the Prime Minister of Norway as well!”
