United has lost six of their last eight matches in all competition but the Norwegian says he is the right man to take the club forward. Solskjaer, however, admitted after the Everton defeat that some of the current crop of players might not be staying at Old Trafford.
“I would like to say yes, but it’s not down to me to say that,” Solskjaer responded when asked if he is the right man for the job.
“I’m confident in my team and myself and that I’ll be ready to take this challenge on. I know it’s a big challenge and that’s why I came in when I came in. I came in here saying I’m going to enjoy every single second of this. I don’t like losing but it’s a great challenge and when you go through bad results you’ve still got to be confident enough to say ‘this is the way we’re going to do it’ and we’re planning ahead.
“I like all these boys, I love them because they’re great lads but I’ve got to make a decision. I’ve got to make a decision for the club.
“I’m managing the club and I help the players but I manage for the club and I’m going to put all of my effort into making sure that we do what we think is right for the club.”
