Solskjaer on being given Man United job

Solskjaer on being given Man United job

19 Mar 2019, 16:30

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he was surprised to be given the interim manager’s job at the due to his terrible record managing Cardiff City.

The Norwegian took over in December as caretaker boss after Jose Mourinho was shown the door after poor performances. By then, it looked impossible for United to compete four a top four finish as well as going past Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League. He has restored the club's form and now the Red Devils are already in the Champions League quarters and a top four finish still looks possible.

“It has always been in the back of my head that this is the dream job,” Solskjaer told the Norwegian publication VG.

“Of course it is. But after what happened in Cardiff, I did not think that this would happen. But then they have obviously followed me. Ed has done a lot of background research and talked a little with those who know me, who know the club and who I have worked with. Then they took the chance."

“Then I had to be honest with myself. ‘Am I ready? Can I make a difference?’ As a supporter in all those years since moving from here, I’ve been thinking about Manchester United and what I wanted to do myself. And I felt this was something I could have done.”
