Solskjaer and Phelan brought back 'old school' Man United - Lingard

There are no two ways about it - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reign as Manchester United caretaker manager has been nothing short of exceptional thus far.

"When they struggled in the summer transfer window, I put a tweet out saying, "Ok, it's not going well but look at all these players at this club" and I listed every single one of them and there's a lot of really, really good players there". There are so many good players [in the United team] - [Paul] Pogba, [Marcus] Rashford, so many. And, my god, how it has worked with Rashford, whose goals against Newcastle and Tottenham especially mirrored the kind of goal Solskjaer used to delight in scoring.

In contrast, Fulham are seven points from safety and have won only once in their last five league games, but Ranieri does not think his team should be completely written off.

"Obviously it's different aims, maybe in certain games it's how many shots, or this many touches in a game".

United are expected to make a decision on their manager at the end of the season.

As well as competing for a top-four berth, United host Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday and face Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round later this month.

Rooney was let go from Manchester United by Jose Mourinho, and he reiterated his belief that Mauricio Pochettino should be employed as the Portuguese's replacement.

If Solskjaer can lead United to silverware and finish in the top four it might be hard for the Glazer family and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to ignore his credentials to land the manager's post on a permanent basis.

"He deserves it at the moment", Ranieri said.

"I remember him as a player, against Chelsea".

"The players like the fact that the full backs are pushed right up". Manchester United's mentality has changed.

Solskjaer has impressed since replacing Jose Mourinho on an interim basis in December, United winning eight of the nine games he's been in charge for. "His career's open, and I wish him all the best".
