Manchester United Accidentally Confirm Solskjaer Hired as Interim Manager

Jose Mourinho was sacked on Tuesday, the club's former striker was widely speculated to be United's choice to take over on a temporary basis. And, in a quickly-deleted post on the club's website, United confirmed the Norwegian's appointment as caretaker boss.

Erna Solberg, the PM wrote, "Great day for Norwegian football. Good Luck keeping control of the Red Devils, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer." Manchester United have accidentally confirmed the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club's interim manager.

"Solskjaer becomes our interim manager, 20 years after clinching the treble with that goal at Camp Nou," the caption read, referencing solskjaer's famous winner in the 1999 Champions League final.

If that weren't enough evidence that Solskjaer was set to take over at Old Trafford, Norway's prime minister herself weighed in with a tweet that she also quickly deleted.
