United agreed O’Driscoll’s arrival back in July after he previously came close to joining Liverpool in 2020.
The 53-year-old Irishman had been the Gunners’ club doctor before becoming their head of medical in 2017.
He also spent a decade as the Irish national team’s doctor before joining Arsenal.
Prior to O’Driscoll’s arrival at Old Trafford, Jim Moxon has been working as United’s interim head of medical services following the departure of Steve McNally in December last year.
Fans believe he is joining the club at the perfect time due to United’s recent injury woes.
A number of players are currently out injured, including Mason Mount and Luke Shaw.
Meanwhile, others have only recently returned to fitness, such as summer signing Rasmus Hojlund.
Defender Raphael Varane also missed their last match before the international break, with his return date unknown.
Reacting to the news of O’Driscoll’s arrival, one supporter tweeted: “Fix Martial and Varane please.”
Another added: “Varane ready for the Bayern game then.”
A third fan also wrote: “Hope he likes a challenge.”
Meanwhile, one more commented: “Let’s hope he can sort the mess out.”
