Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s latest comments could be music to Tottenham’s ears, as the Man United manager has made it clear he wants the job permanently.
The former United striker was named as interim boss after the sacking of Jose Mourinho late last year.
Ever since the dismissal of the Special One, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been heavily linked with the job at the Red Devils.
Pochettino only signed a new 5-year Spurs contract in the summer, so United would have to pay a huge sum to land the Argentinian.
Spurs will be determined to keep hold of their manager too, as Poch has led them to three straight top three finishes in the Premier League.
Solskjaer has now won his first four Prem games in charge of United, and if he continues this fine form, the board will hopefully offer him a more long-term contract, taking the emphasis off Poch and Spurs.
Solskjaer said (Manchester Evening News): “I don’t want to leave. It’s such a great bunch of players, great 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.”
