Gary Neville "not sure what the plan is now" after delay in Solskjaer appointment

Gary Neville has no idea what's taking so long to appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as permanent Manchester United manager.

Fresh from United's historic second-leg comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League earlier this month, Neville predicted that his former club would use the lull during the international break to make the Solskjaer announcement.

But with Premier League football set to return this weekend, Solskjaer remains caretaker manager of United and Neville sounds concerned about the delay.

"I thought United would take the international break to appoint Ole," Neville tweeted on Thursday morning. "I’m not sure what the plan is now!

"Games coming thick and fast so no ideal time to announce without a big distraction to matches. Let’s hope for a snap announcement today!"

Neville's fellow treble-winner Andy Cole is in little doubt about Solskjaer's suitability for the position and has claimed that "this is possibly the most important appointment since Sir Alex left."

"I would give him the job," Cole continued.

"When he came to the club I could see why they were doing it, but we've got to be all brutally honest - I don't think anyone could have sat here and said he would do as well as he has.

"He has gone in, he has galvanised the club, they've got results at the right time."
