Jurgen Klopp press conference

Klopp: There is no doubt Solskjaer will be Manchester United manager next season

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will definitely be given the Manchester United job on a permanent basis this summer.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach was speaking ahead of his Liverpool side’s trip to Old Trafford for their Premier League encounter on Sunday.

Klopp was singing Solskjaer’s praises and said he has no doubt that United’s former super-sub will be in charge at Old Trafford next season.

“It must be one of the best records that a manager has ever had coming in mid-season,” Klopp told his pre-match press conference.

“The potential that this Manchester United team has is really good. He came in and found the right words and I’m really happy for him to show his quality.

“There is no doubt that he will be the manager next year.”

Liverpool and Klopp put an end to Jose Mourinho’s reign in charge of United in December after a 3-1 win for The Reds at Anfield.

Sunday’s fixture is of huge importance for both teams with Liverpool looking to regain top spot in the Premier League while United will be looking to hold onto fourth.

It’s a position few United fans would have believed possible for The Red Devils just a few months ago. However, since Solskjaer took interim charge at Old Trafford, United have won 11 of their 13 games in all competitions.

Those 11 wins have included impressive victories away to Spurs in the Premier League and Arsenal and Chelsea in the FA Cup.

Before Solskjaer arrived, United had won only two of their previous seven games under Mourinho.
