Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he always wanted to be Manchester United boss, saying he believed he could be a better manager than player.
Solskjaer has impressively helped turn United’s season around, guiding the club to 14 wins from 17 matches since replacing Jose Mourinho on an interim basis in December. The Norwegian is tipped to become United’s full-time manager, particularly after seeing them past Paris Saint-Germain in a stunning Champions League last-16 tie. Solskjaer, whose side visit Arsenal on Sunday, said he was now in a position he always dreamt of. “I think I’ve been secretly always wanting to do the job I’m doing now,” he said. “And I probably believed more that I could be a football coach and a manager than a player, because it took me a few years to get to the level I wanted to be as a player.”
