Solskjaer backs Mourinho to return to football’s big time

Solskjaer backs Mourinho to return to football’s big time

Under the tutelage of former manager Jose Mourinho, his rapid development appeared to have been stifled with his consistency often coming under question but since the arrival of interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the 31-time capped England star has been revitalised with four goals and one assist in his last five league outings.

On his incredible start to life at Old Trafford, he said: A's I've said before you go into every single game as a Manchester United coach as a player or manager thinking you'll win the next one, that's just the nature of this club.

Solskjaer does not expect Scott McTominay to leave on loan and confirmed the club are in contract negotiations with the midfielder, while the United boss confirmed January arrivals are unlikely. If I tell you for example that I consider one of the best jobs of my career (was) to finish second with Manchester United in the Premier League, you say 'this guy is insane - he won 25 titles and he's saying finishing second was one of his best achievements in football'.

"Sir Alex Ferguson used to say the day a player is more important than a club, goodbye", Mourinho said.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to make it six straight league victories on the bounce when Manchester United welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Old Trafford this weekend.

"It is sad", Solskjaer said of Fellaini's injury. "David did his job and I thank him for that".

"I want players to be confident but not be complacent and take their foot off the pedal because that's a big difference for me". Everyone said about Tottenham being the test, I don't think that's a test in attitude, the players are going be up for that game.

"I want to coach. I belong to top-level football and (that) is where I am going to be". When you know people, and you've known them for 20/25 years, it's easier to create a good atmosphere.

"I'm still in the hotel but I've found a place so it won't be too long", he added.

"I've been driving around a bit and finding my bearings".

"I've got mates here, so I have been to see a few of them so it's not like I'm stuck in the hotel on my own".
