LONDON - Manchester United has appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the caretaker manager until the end of the 2018/19 season following the sacking of Jose Mourinho on Tuesday. 

Solskjaer, 45, played for United between 1996 and 2007 and is currently manager of Norwegian club Molde.

Solskjaer was the hero on one of the club's most famous nights, scoring the winner deep in stoppage time as United completed a 2-1 comeback triumph over Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final to complete an unprecedented treble.

He was largely a 'super-sub' at the club, a reliable back-up who still managed to find the net 126 times.

United's next game is at Cardiff City on Saturday, where Solskjaer was the manager for nine months in 2014.
