Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals how much he is enjoying being the caretaker manager of Manchester United ahead of their Champions League knockout round clash with PSG.
The Norwegian took over from José Mourinho in December and has overseen a complete turnaround in performance and results, winning ten of his eleven games in charge thus far.
PSG present the biggest challenge yet for Manchester United under Solskjaer, but the ex-striker says he is enjoying “every single minute” of being in the hot-seat.
When the draw was made, Solskjaer was still manager of Molde in Norway, but said there was no inkling he was about to take over the running of his former team at that stage.
“Of course I didn’t know. I was watching it with my son Noah and said ‘wow that is a tough challenge’,’’ Solskjaer told the pre-match press conference.
"We've given ourselves the best possible opportunity because of the way we've come into this game," Ole adds. "We're confident and we're looking like a team. If there was ever a time to go into big games, it's now." #MUFC pic.twitter.com/D4BIyrFrCZ

“But we have given ourselves the best possible opportunity in the way we have gone into tomorrow’s game.
“When Manchester United ring and ask you to help, you say yes. It is a fantastic game to look forward to. The Champions League is a fantastic tournament. It is a test for our whole team.
“I have loved every single minute of it. We knew we had a big challenge in front of us because we were far behind in the league, confidence was low after Liverpool but they have responded fantastically.
“I don’t think we could be in a better frame of mind and looking forward to the next few games.”
Meanwhile, it has been reported in the Independent that the Glazer family have met with Solskjaer to discuss his future at the club, as the prospect of him taking the managerial reins on a permanent basis grows by the day.
