Why Solskjaer Traveled To France Merely 20 Minutes After The Leicester Match

  • Manchester United's Marcus Rashford celebrates his goal with Luke Shaw and team mates

Sunday's win over Leicester City - his seventh in eight league games that have also included one draw - means Manchester United have won four more points than any other Premier League team since he sent them out at Cardiff on December 22.

Solskjaer added: "If I go back to Molde, I will do my best for them but it depends when I go back".

Manchester United could temporarily climb into the top four of the Premier League table when they take on relegation-threatened Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

"Both owners (Kjell Inge Røkke and Bjørn Rune Gjelsten) wished me all the best because they knew this is something I dreamed about".

But Solskjaer defended the Chilean's performance, saying: "He did well, we had to change the game". We put our heads on the line, we put our bodies on the line.

United returned to winning ways following their draw at home to Burnley in midweek, but they were far from convincing after Marcus Rashford scored what proved to be the only goal nine minutes into the game. "It was a attractive pass, great finish".


It came from a delightful Paul Pogba pass, with the duo being the main benefactors of Solskjaer's attacking tactics.

United were 11 points off the top four when Solskjaer was appointed, but have since narrowed that gap to five points ahead of their trip to Leicester City on Sunday, making the Norwegian a strong candidate to be given the job permanently. Speaking on that, Solskjaer said that player can still improve.

He continued on Pogba, "I think he can look back on these games and say that he is on his way". Marcus had a great chance from Luke Shaw's cross and finished the ball fantastically well when Paul [Pogba] played him through.

The victory moved United onto 48 points, two adrift of Chelsea in fourth place.

Former Blackpool boss Paul Ince caused quite the stir over the weekend when he repeated his claim that he could do the same job as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now doing at Manchester United.
