Solskjaer hints at wanting Man United manager's job permanently

Solskjaer hints at wanting Man United manager's job permanently

Sanchez will be absent for caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first game in charge against Cardiff.

United, who sacked Jose Mourinho on Tuesday, have been heavily linked with a move for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino in the summer once Solskjaer's interim spell ends at the end of the season.

'He'll hold the fort until the end of the season, he's there for at least six months and if he does well he'll get a couple of years.

While Mourinho was often criticized for being too defensive, Solksjaer won three trophies at Norwegian club Molde and likes to play organized and quickly on the counter.

Solskjaer's first game in charge is away to former side Cardiff on Saturday (5.30pm).

"It does not matter what team you're coaching - they all want to have a picture of how you want to play".

"He won't have believed the phone call he got (from Manchester United) originally, and he'll still be on cloud nine".

Solskjaer inherits a disjointed, top-heavy squad. "I've already been in touch with him, there's no one to get better advice from".

Fed Raises Rates Despite Trump Attacks, Stocks Tank
European stocks rose after Italy's government reached an agreement with the European Commission on its budget plans. No longer will the Fed be able to signal weeks in advance the near-certainty of a shift in rates.

It should be remembered Solskjaer's fellow United legend Ryan Giggs was in the same position for the final four games of the 2013-14 season.

"The amount of games coming up is no problem because we've got quality players and they'll get a chance to show that they're Man Utd players", he said of the packed schedule.

"Everyone starts with a clean slate and we want players to perform, and we'll give them the chance".

"I don't think anyone has been on the bench more than me!" You play without fear, with courage. Respect. I can't wait to help the team!

"Every game has its own story so we have to close the last game and prepare for the next one".

"I've evaluated, reflected, made a few mistakes but if you don't make mistakes you're not going to learn. I'm fortunate in a way that I don't deal with the top players, and I get my satisfaction from working with a good group of lads".

"I didn't think twice when they called me to signed me as a player and I didn't this time either".
