Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that he is at par with United’s Chief Executive Officer Ed Woodward’s long term vision for the club.

Solskjaer was given the job last year in December to lead the club until the end of the season after the then boss Jose Mourinho was sacked for a dismal start to the current season.

Mourinho was also believed to have had a sour relationship with Woodward and most of the players at the club.

Since takeover, Solskjaer has turned things around at United, winning nine games and drawing once in the process.

According to Sky Sports, when Solskjaer was asked if he heart is still red, he said: “Everyday I feel that I do help the club and put a little bit of my stamp on it.

“But decisions, sometimes of players’ futures are not down to me, either. It’s the players, do they want to stay, do they want to move on, do they want something else?

“We have a vision and a picture of how we want to look in a few years, we have to think long term but also short term. I have a picture of how I think this Man Utd team will look in a couple years.

“I don’t know if it is with me, but I always put my views across to Ed Woodward and the ones in the club.”

He also added that his view of the club after arrival has not changed.

“Not really. I’ve supported United for many years since I went home. And I had a clear view on what my opinion would be.

“You get a different view of some of the players: ‘he’s impressed me, he’s got some way to go’.

“We are not too far away from what I thought when I came.”

United will take on Fulham tomorrow, and a win will see them move to fourth place in the English Premier League table, since fourth team Chelsea whom they trail by 2 points will play Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
