It’s been one year since Manchester United decided that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the man to lead their resurgence, let’s have look how he’s done.

On this day one year ago Manchester United announced Ole Gunnar Solskaer as their new permanent manager.

This followed a quite phenomenal start to life in his position as interim boss.

During his interim spell in charge, Solskjaer broke numerous records, including becoming the first United manager to win his opening six matches in charge.

He collected the most points of any top-flight manager during his first 10 games in charge.

Who can forget that amazing night in Paris?

These kinds of results and the new feel good factor being around the club led to his permanent appointment.

However, since then it has been far from plain sailing. Following his appointment, he went on to win only six of his next 22 games.

If you compared him to Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp though. It seemed that Solskjaer was worthy of the position as Manchester United boss.

Despite all the negativity surrounding the Norweigan, he fared no worse than his predecessor the “special one” Jose Mourinho.

As his first full season in charge draws to a close, Manchester United sit fifth in the Premier League, still in with a shout of winning the Europa League and the FA Cup.

His league record reads, played 57, won 27, drawn 14 and lost 16.

Its no secret the Red Devils are nowhere near where they want to be.

However, how do you think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done?

Is he the right man to continue to lead Manchester United or will someone else be in charge next season?
