Ole Gunnar Solskjær has returned to his former club to become Manchester United’s caretaker manager until the end of the season.

Solskjær spent 11 seasons at United as a player and replaces José Mourinho, who was sacked earlier this week after his failure to rejuvenate the team despite massive summer spending.

The Norwegian arrived at Carrington today to take training and has been on MUTV to speak about the job and what he hopes to achieve.

The team are expected to make a permanent appointment following the end of the season but the caretaker manager could be in with a shout if performances improve.

These were the best tweets and jokes as Ole Gunnar Solskjær takes over at Man Utd, temporarily at least:

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is even a super sub as a manager.

Solskjaer should be coming in to replace Lukaku, not mourinho

If Manchester United have six months of Solskjaer, they’ll then need two years from this guy to straighten them out. They’re a package deal pic.twitter.com/kl73rL8q1G

Clive Tyldesley: *watching the news*

Wife (from another room): what?

United fought off the likes of Lillestrøm, Notodden and The Shire to secure the services of Solskjaer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, 15 minutes after being appointed as United manager, is already level with Pochettino at Spurs and Klopp at Liverpool on the trophy count.

Great decision.

If Solskjaer wanted to eclipse his moment in 99 he could sell Lukaku in January.

Just to keep Man City fans in the loop Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a former Manchester United player

I would have appointed Andy Cole as the new Manchester United manager. Then replace him with Solskjaer with a few games to go.

Don't worry Man Utd fans, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a trick or two up his sleeve to help out that leaky defence…… pic.twitter.com/fd8tKzGnBW

Funfact: Solskjaer joined United as player in 1997
Won the Treble in 1999
Retired in 2007
Managed United Reserves in 2008-2011
Managed Molde and won the league title
He's back at United as interim manager in 2018!

And Liverpool still haven't won the Premier league title 😂 😂😂
