Manchester United

Solskjaer keeping excitement in check

9th March 2019, 09:53 by Aidan Perkins

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he cannot get excited about the prospect of the full-time Man Utd job yet but he "loves" it at the club.

Solskjaer is expected to be eventually named permanent United boss after an outstanding spell in caretaker charge since December.

The Norwegian has yet to lose in the Premier League and guided his side to a superb comeback win at Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday to progress to the last eight.

It is thought the club hierarchy are ready to appoint the former striker soon but Solskjaer is not getting carried away with the chance of getting the job permanently, even though he admits he's enjoying every minute of being back at Old Trafford.

He said: "I love managing these boys, I love working here. As I said so many times, I am just doing the best I can every single day, and if and when if it comes to a decision to be made, we've got to think about that.

"I am not here to get excited, I am here to do my job. I am contracted to Man United until the end of June."
