Ole Gunnar Solksjaer
‘Ole at the wheel’ the sentiments echoed by the jubilant Manchester United fans after finishing third behind champions Liverpool and Manchester City in what could be dubbed as a ‘roller coaster’ season.
In December 2018, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was confirmed as caretaker manager of United for the remainder of that season. Life at Manchester United could not have been better for Ole in his first 10 games. No other United manager had won their first eight straight games at the helm, Ole had nine wins and a draw from his first ten.
When the protracted English Premier League season concludes today, one of three teams near the top of the table will be left bitterly disappointed.
In what has to be one of the most interesting chases for Champions League places in the English Premier League, two of three teams, Manchester United (63 points), Chelsea (63 points) and Leicester City (62 points) will seal their place, while the other will be left holding the bag.
