"Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role. I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club," said Solskjær.
Solskjær spent much of his career playing as a forward for Manchester United.
Manchester United sacked Jose Mourinho on 18 December, two days after suffering an embarrassing 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool.
