Paddy Power stop taking bets on Solskjaer getting United job after PSG ‘miracle’

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his young Manchester United side pulled off a seismic result in the Champions League last night and we’ve seen enough…


Manchester United’s historic win in Paris last night has sealed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the permanent manager’s job, according to our oddsmakers anyway.

We have stopped taking bets on the eventuality after United miraculously overturned a 2-0 first leg deficit against PSG to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

It’s the latest extraordinary achievement in Solskjaer’s reign, and the Norwegian must now be a shoo-in for the job.

We also have it at 150/1 that United win the Champions League with a 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich – just as they did in Ole’s most famous moment in 1999.

Asked about Solskjaer spokesman Paddy Power said: “Ole! If it wasn’t enough of a miracle that he’s got Lukaku banging in the goals, or Pogba bossing games instead of social media, Solskjaer’s even got VAR under his spell.

“As a result of the result in Paris, we’ve suspended betting on him getting the United job full time. And the odds of them winning the Champions League are in from 100/1 pre-match to 8/1 fourth favourites now. Because could you really rule it out after that?”
