Manchester United boss, Ed Woodward has proposed a £2m bonus to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if he manages to finish the season in the Premier League top four.
The Norwegian was appointed as interim head coach of the Red Devils following the sacking of Jose Mourinho and Woodward has already been rewarded with a 5-1 thumping of Cardiff City.
While a single game is not indicative of a manager’s future success, it certainly is a good way to start off your managerial career at Old Trafford. United have managed to close the gap between themselves and the top-four spots after Chelsea’s 0-1 home loss against Leicester City.
With 20 games still left in the league this campaign, this is still a distinct possibility of Manchester United sneaking their way into the Champions League qualification spots. Missing out on the top-tier European competition could result in a £40m loss in revenues, according to reports.
Woodward has already shelled out ginormous amounts in the transfer windows with very less received in returns. The United faithful expect to see swift change being delivered after Mourinho’s disappointing contribution to the side.
To push the ultimate agenda, Woodward has offered a massive bonus to Solskjaer which he could collect other than his wages for the next six months. If the 45-year-old manages to pull off the miraculous comeback he might also be considered for the permanent position.
