Solskjaer speaks on what he needs to do to become permanent manager at United

Manchester United caretaker manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that the only measure of success at Old Trafford would be to win trophies.

Since taking charge last December, Solskjaer has won his first 8 games and is looking to make it 9 when he faces Burnley at home on Tuesday.

According to Solskjaer whose club is just 3 points away from top four, gaining a spot for the champions league is not all that matters.

“We’ve got the Champions League, we’ve got the FA Cup, we can’t just say top-four and that’s it.

“We’ve got to look at, ‘Can we win something this year?’ And I go into every single game as United manager thinking we can win.

“We’re about winning ­trophies, of course we are.

“We can’t win the league this year, but we’re still in the FA Cup, so we’re going to try to win it, of course. I think every manager wants to win every game, so I don’t think that’s the point he was making.

“If you win trophies that’s a fantastic day for everyone in the club.

“It’s just the best time of your life, that day when you win, ­because you never know when the next one is going to come.

“The manager always said, ‘Enjoy whatever trophy you win’, but it’s not up to me to discuss what anyone else

“I’m just saying that we, here at this club, we’re looking to win trophies,” he told a press conference on Monday.
