Ole Gunnar Solskjær could barely understand it, when he suddenly got a call in december last year.
The former Molde coach was needed as a fire extinguisher in the Manchester United for the rest of last season.
A few months and a good handful of victories later, he was tenured, and Thursday he was able to celebrate its first anniversary at the head of storholdet.
We are screws, however, right back to the day in december 2018.
For here was Ole Gunnar Solskjær sure of one thing. He had to have his fingers in Mike Phelan as assistant, he tells of Manchester United's own podcast.
Mike Phelan has had a ton of trænerroller under Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and stopped simultaneously with the club's scottish trænerlegende.
"I knew that I had to have Mike with me. But have had training at a college in Burnley. I could not get hold of him. I rang, and rang and rang."
"by the Way, I called the boss (Alex Ferguson, eds.) first and said that I had been offered the job and asked what he thought. He said: 'Yes, you should probably clear it'."
"I knew I had to have hold of the Mike. I eventually got hold of him, and he said yes. He had 150 missed calls. The head called also to him and said: 'You should probably talk with the Ole'," says the Norwegian to the Manchester United podcast.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær led Manchester United to 14 wins in its first 17 the fight in the forefront of Manchester United, after which fastansættelsen came in the house.
since then fell once again Manchester United in level towards the end of last season, and this season the results have again been volatile. The club went quite safe to move on from his Europa League-group and is now number six in the Premier League with 25 points for 17 matches. It has led to fyringsrygter.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær has previously been in charge of Molde (twice) and Cardiff City. Before its cheftrænerjobs trained he is Manchester United's reserves.
