“I can’t wait to get out in front of a packed Old Trafford and get this campaign started,” he added. “I have a fantastic coaching team around me, and we are all ready to take that next step on our journey. Manchester United wants to be winning the biggest and best trophies and that’s what we are all striving for. We have improved, both on and off the pitch, and that will continue over the coming seasons.”
“Ole and his staff have worked tirelessly putting the foundations in place for long-term success on the pitch.” United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said. “The results of that have become increasingly visible over the past two seasons and we are all looking forward to seeing this exciting team develop further in the years ahead.”
