Solskjaer hopes Man United stay extends beyond this season

Solskjaer hopes Man United stay extends beyond this season

Solskjaer takes United to Cardiff on Saturday for his first game, where he will face the side he was relegated with when in charge in 2014.

Both player and manager had glowing things to say about each other at first, but frustration mounted for whatever reason and Mourinho started treating the 2018 World Cup victor like a second-class citizen. "The biggest club in the world, the best club in the world, the best supporters in the world and we've got the best players in the world".

Speaking in an interview with Betfair, Berbatov said: "It's going to be very interesting watching his progress".

"My job is to help the players, make them grasp the opportunity now because they all want to be part of Man United", said Solskjaer. It's down to man management.

"But if you look around realistically at the moment, it's a amusing situation as Spurs are 13 points clear of United in the table and in a better position than their rivals up north".

"When I was out ill I worked for six months with the reserves with Warren Joyce, and that [give Pogba freedom] is what we did", Fletcher told talkSPORT.

"When you are at Manchester there are a set of demands - standards expected".

Brendan Rodgers to succeed Jose Mourinho at Man United?
You can't question the mentality of players as often as Mourinho did and expect them to perform for you. The breakdown of Pogba's relationship with Mourinho has mirrored United's decline this season.

"I do think he is the person who is the outstanding candidate".

"You might come on and make an impact". You've got to start somewhere. "Playing for pride, history, it will be extremely unique". We want to see them play the football they can do. "You have to play with courage, go out there and express your skills".

Spurs' multi-pronged trophy assault risks being sidetracked by constant speculation linking their highly-rated manager to the United job and on Thursday he was stopped from answering questions on the issue at his press conference. His last game, the 5-5 at West Brom, was nearly the ideal end for him. "But I've not sat down and talked about that, because my job is to get these players enjoying football".

"From day one, not only in the coaching staff but with the players, there's a lot of rumours that happen in football".

Solskjaer, who says he has already spoken with Ferguson about his appointment, believes his old boss was the ideal mentor for his coaching career.

"I was quite interested (in joining United in 1996)".

A video on the club's official website was posted on Tuesday evening with the caption: "Solskjaer becomes our interim manager, 20 seasons after clinching the Treble with THAT goal at Camp Nou..." Ever since my injury in 2003 at least, I was making all the notes on what he did in certain situations.
