The former Norway international will succeed Jose Mourinho, who was sacked on Tuesday and will be joined by ex-United coach Mike Phelan, and Carrick as his assistant.
Solskjaer, 45, who scored 126 goals for United in 11 seasons at Old Trafford will leave his job as manager of Norwegian side Molde who wont resume until March.
United mistakenly posted a video on their official website on Tuesday which featured Solskjaer scoring the winner in the Champions League final against Bayern in 1999. and captioned: “Solskjaer becomes our interim manager, 20 seasons after clinching the Treble with THAT goal at Camp Nou…” It was later deleted.
