Some Man Utd fans want Solskjaer given Man Utd job on full-time basis

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had the perfect start to life as Manchester United interim boss with two wins from two.

Recognised as a club legend by every United fan, scoring 120 goals during his 11-years at Old Trafford as a player, Solskjaer replaced José Mourinho in the hotseat a week ago.

Solskjaer will be sure to take advice from former manager Sir Alex Ferguson should the Scot ever feel the need to have a word with one of his better strikers.

However, it remains to be seen whether Solskjaer can do enough between now and the end of the season to convince the United board to give him the manager’s job full-time. He certainly sounds keen and has been smiling ever since being appointed as caretaker manager.

According to The Sun, Spurs are concerned about losing Mauricio Pochettino to one of Real Madrid or Manchester United. The Argentine coach has also been tipped as a candidate to takeover at Old Trafford, though his lack of trophies is leaving many concerned.

During Friday’s press conference, a journalist asks Solskjaer about the impact the past week has had on him. Solskjaer replied, as quoted by the Daily Star: “In a football team, you always look at different things to improve on.

“But I’m coming in from the outside, so it’s hard to make a difference.

“My job has been to seek to the players, trying to get to know their feelings and know what their confidence levels are.

“Every single player has a responsibility to improve.”

He also stressed that there are still issues with the squad – but at least Solskjaer is getting the best out of his players, unlike Mourinho.

“There are things we need to improve,” he continued.

“We’re in this position for a reason. We’ve not been consistent enough, we’ve not been able to keep clean sheets.

“And we’re not scoring enough goals.

“We’ve conceded two goals from set pieces now.

“So the open play and defending has been good but we need to get back to the habit of not conceding goals.”

But some United fans believe the Norwegian should get the full-time gig as manager. See the tweets below.
