United sows doubt with deleted video on ‘interim coach’ Solskjaer

Manchester United on Wednesday caused confusion by a video to publish in which former player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer interim coach, but that movie, and not much later again to remove.

The ailing United fired manager José Mourinho Tuesday and then let know that the first time an interim coach will be appointed. The club wants to take the time in the search for a permanent successor to the Portuguese.

The 45-year-old Solskjaer played between 1996 and 2007, the current number six of the Premier League. He made in 1999, deep into injury time the winning hit in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in Barcelona (2-1).

After his spelersloopbaan he was appointed as coach of the second team of United. The former attacker is now head coach of the Norwegian Molde FK.

The by United published video led to the congratulations of the Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg. “It’s a great day for Norwegian football. Good luck with the lead of “The Red Devils”, she wrote in a tweet that she later deleted.
