Manchester United

No further talks for Solskjaer

12th January 2019, 10:51 by Nick Harris

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not held any further talks with the club about becoming the new permanent Manchester United boss.

Solskjaer has matched Sir Matt Busby's record by winning his first five games at the helm of United, though the consensus is this weekend's encounter at Spurs represents his first significant test.

The former striker is in charge of United until the end of the season but his case to become the permanent successor to Jose Mourinho will become all the more compelling if he gets the better of Mauricio Pochettino at Wembley.

Pochettino has been heavily linked with the Old Trafford post in recent weeks, even though he signed a new deal to remain at Tottenham until 2023 last summer.

Despite the positive start he has made to his reign, Solskjaer revealed he has had no further discussions about his situation with the United hierarchy.

He added: "No, we've not had that conversation. You don't plan five or six months ahead and then suddenly, after two weeks, change that. No, nothing's changed.

"We just keep working every single day on improving the team here. I work with a fantastic coaching staff, I have to say. We'll put a plan together on how we want to look the next few months."
