Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shared Manchester United vision with Ed Woodward

There are no two ways about it - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reign as Manchester United caretaker manager has been nothing short of exceptional thus far.

"I signed him for £5million, it was good business", said the 67-year-old.

United have not lost any of their 10 matches since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as Jose Mourinho's interim successor in December.

Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic look more likely to start and should have too much quality for the home midfield, in truth.

Finally, unlike Ince, Solskjaer is a legendary figure at the club and is revered by all United fans who remember that fateful day when the baby-faced assassin scored the victor in the Champions League final and secured us the treble.

Following a terrible start to the Premier League under Jose Mourinho, a top-four spot would ensure Champions League glory for Solskjaer's men and would mark a laudable achievement for the Norwegian tactician.

Solskjaer said: 'Phil knows what it takes to be a Manchester United player, he has won the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League and is now one of the senior players within the team.

With victories in nine of those games, fifth-placed United have surged back into the race to qualify for next season's Champions League via a top-four finish. However, United's form under the Norwegian has sparked some reports that the job may now be given to their former striker instead.

Claudio Ranieri does not think Fulham's upcoming clash with Manchester United is a foregone conclusion, pointing out the Red Devils' unbeaten run must end at some point.

"But decisions, sometimes of players" futures are not down to me, either.

The pair famously didn't get on and Pogba had grown frustrated at the defensive role he was being asked to play.

"As long as we're winning games that's all that matters". "His career's open, and I wish him all the best".
