Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that he won’t want to leave the club when his spell in charge comes to an end in May.

The Norwegian was handed the reins on a temporary basis at Old Trafford after former manager Jose Mourinho was relieved of his duties. The ex-United forward has enjoyed a dream start having chalked up four consecutive wins.

That has led him to suggest that he will not want his spell in charge of the Red Devils to come to an end. When asked if he would want to depart in May, Solskjaer said: “Of course I won’t, I don’t want to.

“It’s such a great bunch of players, a fantastic atmosphere, but it’s the next game, it’s the next game, it’s the next game and I’m doing my job as long as I’m here.”

The 45-year-old made history at the club by becoming the first manager following Sir Matt Busby to win his first four matches in charge. However, he has said that he is not dwelling on the past and is only focussing on continuing United’s rich vein of form.

He said: “That will be in the books, but it’s nothing that I’m thinking of. I’m just thinking about the next game because if you win four, you can win another four at this club. That’s the challenge and that’s the standard that we’re known for.

“The gaffer used to challenge us on them and of course when we’ve won four, you can go onto the next four and think about them.”

Solskjaer is currently second favourite to be appointed he next permanent boss of the Red Devils and can be backed at 4/1 with BetFair.
