Loads of Man United fans react as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer contract decision made

Manchester United fans have given mixed reactions to the news that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to sign a new contract as manager.

According to ESPN, United are committing to extending Solskjaer’s current deal regardless of whether he ends the club’s four-year trophy drought this season.

United’s only realistic chance left of winning a trophy is the Europa League, after the Reds were knocked out of the FA Cup by Leicester and sit 14 points behind runaway leaders Manchester City in the Premier League.

Solskjaer’s side have been drawn against Granada in the Europa League quarter-finals and will face Ajax or Roma if they overcome the eighth-placed La Liga team.

But the outcome of the European competition won’t directly impact Solskjaer’s future as ESPN’s report notes that the club are happy with the progression they are seeing under the Norwegian boss.

Solskjaer approaches the final year of his three-year deal this summer but it is added that both parties are relaxed and planning for the long-term future.

United are second in the league table and are poised to finish in the top-four for a second consecutive season.

But some fans cannot see why a decision should be rushed and believe United managers should ultimately be defined by silverware.
