“I am excited to be joining Manchester United and focused on making this a successful season for the club,” the manager added.

“The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience. All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.

“Beyond that, I look forward to supporting the club’s longer-term goals on a consultancy basis.”

Michael Carrick, who had taken charge of the team since the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earlier this month, will remain in charge of the first team until the German’s work permit is finalised.
