Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was confirmed as Man Utd’s permanent manager on Thursday, and TV2 Sport in Norway were pretty creative with how they broke the news.

There are guest appearances from the likes of Jose Mourinho, Paul Ince and Paul Pogba, and it has certainly gone viral with over 800,000 views on Twitter.

For now though, we can all enjoy this brilliant parody…
