The Norwegian has overseen a huge turn around at Old Trafford given that he took over from Jose Mourinho on an interim basis.

Sir Alex Ferguson has given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his backing for him to be the permanent manager of Manchester United, according to reports.

The interim manager has revitalized the tempo at old Trafford considering the fact that the sacking of Jose Mourinho has led to him being successful in 11 of his 13 games in charge so far as the time of this writing. This is no small feat and is responsible for Sir Alex Ferguson has backing Solskjaer for the job of Manchester United’s permanent manager.

His predecessor claimed it would just take a ‘miracle’ to climb into the major four, but now Solskjaer has United inside of the Champions League qualification spots and will look to cement that place when they welcome Liverpool on Sunday.

And, according to the Mirror, Sir Alex has been mightily impressed and wishes him to be presented the full-time role.

The pair have a small partnership which stays intact and sees Sir Alex Ferguson providing guidance and a peripheral supervisory role from time to time.

Sir Alex will have a significant say in the appointment of a Manchester United permanent manager on account of his position on the board at Old Trafford.

Tottenham supervisor Mauricio Pochettino is recognized to be the other probable candidate for the job, but Solskjaer would make himself more difficult to replace with a victory when Manchester United meet Liverpool.
