Solskjaer in pole position for Man Utd job after a dressing room visit from Ed Woodward

Solskjaer in pole position for Man Utd job after a dressing room visit from Ed Woodward

January 15, 2019

Chief Ed Woodward and United’s hierarchy have been wowed by the Norwegian’s 100 per cent start.

The executive vice-chairman went into the Wembley dressing room after the 1-0 victory against Spurs to congratulate Solskjaer on the job he is doing.

The Old Trafford powerbrokers initially only had Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino in their sights.

But former striker Solskjaer’s record-breaking six wins from his first six games has hugely impressed them.

Now the clamour for him to get the job permanently is growing not only among the fans and players but in the boardroom, too.

Victory over Poch’s side on Sunday moved the Red Devils level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal and just six off the Champions League spots.

Solskjaer was initially brought in as an interim boss in the wake of Jose Mourinho’s sacking to steady the ship and lift spirits at the club.

But his achievements have gone way beyond that and United chiefs now see a real United manager in the making.

The work he did tactically ahead of the Spurs game at a Dubai training camp particularly impressed the board.

They have also taken note of the one-on-one work he has done with the likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford in particular.

United still have until May before making the official decision, but even that could be brought forward if Solskjaer, 45, continues in this vein.

He would also save United a huge amount of money. SunSport revealed last week Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would not let Pochettino go for £50million.

And even then, it would be a drawn out process.

Solskjaer certainly has the backing of the players who unanimously want him to become the permanent boss.
