Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made a fine start to life as caretaker Manchester United boss, winning nine of his 10 games as boss.

Even though the Norwegian doesn’t know if he would be at the club beyond this summer, he has mapped out his vision for the club to Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and is thinking about long-term targets at Old Trafford.

Ahead of United’s Premier League against Fulham on Saturday, Solskjaer said: “Well, every day I feel that I do help the club, do 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, but we have a vision and a picture of how we want to look in a few years and of course we have to think long term and also short term.

“And I’ve got a picture of what this Man United team should look [like] in a couple of years, I don’t know if it’s with me, but I put my views to Ed [Woodward] and the club.

“I’ve supported Man United and I’ve followed Man United for many, many years since I’ve gone back home. And I did have a clear view on what I thought my opinion would be, you get a different view on some of the players, he’s impressed me, he’s got some way to go, but we’re not too far away from when I came.”
