EPL: Solskjaer speaks on leaving Manchester United in May


Manchester United caretaker manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said he did not want to leave his role at the club when the season ends in May.

He was appointed interim manager after the club sacked Jose Mourinho last December.

Manchester United’s 2 – 0 win over on Wednesday meant he became the second manager in the club’s history to win his first four league games in charge, emulating Sir Matt Busby in 1946.

When asked if he will leave in the summer, Solskjaer told BBC Sports: “I don’t want to.”

The 45-year-old took up the position after being given permission by Molde, although the club in his native Norway stressed they were only “lending” Solskjaer to United, indicating they expected him to return to his role as manager.

On matching Busby, who won five league titles as United manager between 1945 and 1969 and then 1970-71, Solskjaer said: “That will be in the books but it’s nothing I’m thinking of.

“I’m just thinking about the next game, because if you win four you can win another four with this club. That’s the challenge, that’s the standard we’re used to.”

Substitute Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford scored second-half goals at St James’ Park as Manchester United moved back within three points of fifth-placed Arsenal.
