Too early to talk about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for full-time Manchester United job, says club legend Paul Scholes


It is too early to say whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be given the Manchester United job on a permanent basis, says club legend Paul Scholes.

The interim manager has won his first seven games since replacing Jose Mourinho last month. The Red Devils are now just three points off a Champions League place.

Solskjaer is under consideration to be appointed full-time at the end of the season along with Tottenham chief Mauricio Pochettino and England boss Gareth Southgate.

Scholes, who made 718 appearances for United, says his former team-mate has brought back the feel-good factor to Old Trafford.

He told talkSPORT’s Dom McGuiness: “It’s been brilliant. To be honest with you, I was a little bit surprised when he got appointed, but you see what a good decision it’s been.

“He’s put smiles on faces, he gives players a little bit of love.

“He can be nasty when he needs to be but seven wins out of seven, the feel-good factor is back at the club, fans actually want to go to watch the games.

“They’re playing an attacking style of football and long may it continue.”

Some Red Devils fans are desperate for Solskjaer, who is set to return to Norwegian club Molde this summer, to stay on.

When asked if he deserves to be named the next permanent United manager, Scholes said: “I think it’s too early to say that.

“He’s done great, winning seven from seven, you can’t complain, the football has been fantastic to watch.

“I think we’ll get to the end of the season and reassess where we’re at. But he can’t be doing himself any harm at the minute.”
