Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opens up about spell as Man Utd manager and makes big claim about his future in rare interview

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opened up about his ill-fated spell as Manchester United manager.

The former United boss was relieved of his duties in November 2022, after a series of crushing losses to Watford, Manchester City and bitter rivals Liverpool.

But speaking to selected media on Friday. Solskjaer announced after 18 months out of the game he was eager for a return to management.

“I’ve got at least one club job in me. It has to be an interesting one, somewhere, an adventure, somewhere, I can be myself. No disrespect, but after you’ve managed Manchester United for three years, it’s like, where do you go?” Solskjaer said, via theHindustan Times.

“Yeah, of course, I want to feel that pressure again. You know, when you see the games, you miss it.”

The 50-year-old added: “It’s the best job in the world (managing Manchester United). You always want to manage against the best football people in the world. The Premier League is the best league in the world, the most difficult.

“I have been there for three years. Yes, it is a hard job. It’s an extraordinary job, but you’re the face of the biggest and best club in the world.

“You have to be ready all the time to be scrutinised. So, I enjoyed it and I needed a break after I stepped away.”

Solskjaer also appeared optimistic when reflecting on his former club’s fortunes since his departure.

Despite having picked up a dismal 38 points from 23 league games this term, Solskjaer admitted he was excited for the arrival of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a petrochemicals billionaire who is having a 25 per cent stake in the club ratified by the Premier League.

With Ratcliffe set to take control of the football department at Old Trafford, Solskjaer added: “It’s very exciting times with Jim Ratcliffe (the new United owner).

“I think it has breathed belief into both fans and supporters. But we need more consistency. You can see even the better teams are not as consistent as they were.

“If you go two years back, Liverpool 99-100 points, that is consistency. If we want to get to the top again we need at least 90 points, and you need more consistency.”
