Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Gifts Manchester United's Receptionist With A Bar Of Norwegian Chocolate

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived at Manchester United’s training ground bearing gifts.

On his first day at work, he gifted the clubs receptionist of 50 years Kath Phipps with a bar of Norwegian chocolate in a class gesture.

Solskjaer has been appointed as United’s caretaker manager until the end of the 2018/19 season, following the sacking of Jose Mourinho on Tuesday.

The 45-year-old temporarily leaves his role at Molde to link up with his former team. The club are expecting him to return to Norway in May.

It’s believed United have agreed a compensation fee with Molde of less than £500,000 to bring ‘Baby Faced Assassin’ to England.

Mourinho was relieved of his duties after United’s Premier League defeat to Liverpool, last weekend.

He spent two-and-a-half years in charge at United, winning the Europa League and League Cup during his reign.

“I have been immensely proud to wear the badge of Manchester United since the first day I arrived, and I believe all United fans recognise this,” Mourinho said in a statement.

“Each time a chapter is closed, I show my deepest respect by not making any comments about my former colleagues.”

Meanwhile, Solskjaer will take charge of United for the first time this weekend against his former side, Cardiff City.
