Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Champions League chance a dream come true

Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Champions League chance a dream come true

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be appointed Manchester United's next full-time boss, according to a report.

Solskjaer said he had met United owner Avram Glazer after the game, but he wouldn't be drawn on whether they would have any further meetings to discuss his future at the club. But these big games coming up will determine where we end up.

Fulham had begun the game brightly, creating four shots in the first five minutes, but their chances petered out and they seemed to lose confidence as United controlled the ball for long periods. Of course, we're all happy after winning the game.

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer smiles before the Premier League match with Fulham at Craven Cottage in London February 9, 2019. Yet to win away from home this season, their next three visitors at Craven Cottage are all powerhouses - Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.

"It's not just about putting smiles on faces, but that is a big part of it. Making sure you come into training looking forward to the next day and enjoy what you're doing".

The duo may have felt unlucky not to have been given a game at Fulham yesterday when Solskjaer made six changes to his team with the Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain around the corner.

"I've said it in the past, we've not achieved anything yet, we're under no illusions but we're heading in the right direction".

"Last year, we said that getting into second place was a fantastic thing due to the qualities we had compared to the qualities of the other teams fighting for the top four", he told RedeTV!

"We might have been a bit of a laughing stock at the beginning of the season but we're certainly not now".

But it was the 2017-18 campaign in which he came to global attention, with his 15 Championship strikes instrumental in helping Fulham gain promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

"But my players are very. not anxious, but they want to score immediately, but against big teams, it's hard".

Martial became the most expensive teenager in history when he moved to Old Trafford from Monaco in 2015 and he has largely impressed during his time at the club, scoring 47 goals in 164 appearances.
