How Manchester United Nigerian Fans Reacted To Solskjaer's Appointment As Full-Time Manager
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed as the full-time manager of Manchester United on a three-year deal, the Old Trafford side have confirmed via their official website.

The permanent employment of the former Norway international, who previously served as caretaker boss after José Mourinho's sacking in December 2018, has led to reactions from Manchester United Nigerian fans on social media.
