Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has praised Manchester United’s ‘outrageous’ form under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Saints travel to Old Trafford this weekend to take on Solskjaer’s in-form side, and Hasenhuttl admits he has been impressed with the Norwegians impact since taking over from Jose Mourinho on a temporary basis in December.
United have won 12 of the 15 games since Solskjaer took charge and Hasenhuttl reckons the 46-year-old is giving himself every chance of becoming the next full-time manager at Old Trafford.
“I think they will (appoint Solskjaer), to be unbeaten to now is amazing and outrageous,” said Hasenhuttl at his pre-match press conference.
“With his history as a player (at United) and now doing it as a manager, you can’t have better signs to be the next man.
“We spoke about the time of (Sir) Alex Ferguson, where nobody wanted to go there because there was nothing for you. In the years after, this myth is not as strong because other teams could take points there. They are going back to the old ways where it is hard to take points from them.”
