Manchester United appear to have confirmed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as interim manager.

It's been reported that the club referred to their former striker as "our interim manager" on their website - in a post that was later deleted.

There has been no official announcement that the Norwegian is taking over - the club say they will report a permanent boss at the end of the season.

It comes after Jose Mourinho was sacked "with immediate effect" on Tuesday.


Police warning if you're heading into Manchester tonight

Greater Manchester Police say they're working to minimise disruption ahead of tonight's Champions League match at Old Trafford.

Almost 3 thousand Young Boys fans are expected in the city for the tie with Manchester United.

Road closures will be put in place as they're escorted to the ground

Tuesday will be a very busy evening as we welcome thousands of Young Boys fans to the city.

In addition there will also be large crowds enjoying the Christmas Markets as well as rush hour traffic and major road works in and around Trafford Park and the city centre.

Many of the 3,000 Young Boys supporters will want to walk together to Old Trafford. We are working closely with Manchester United Football Club, local councils and Transport for Greater Manchester to ensure we do everything possible to minimise disruption.

The supporters will be escorted to the stadium at around 4.30pm from Shambles Square, during which time traffic will be temporarily stopped on several roads but we’ll endeavour to keep traffic flowing wherever possible.

Those travelling to Old Trafford to watch the game should allow plenty of time to contend with traffic and security checks at the stadium and we would ask commuters and motorists to plan their journeys in advance and take into account the large volume of people that will be in and around the area during this time.

Officers will be on hand throughout the city and around the stadium on Tuesday evening to assist with any concerns or issues anyone may have before, during or after the match.

– Chief Superintendent Graeme Openshaw, Match Commander
