Solskjaer admits winning Premier League is his main target

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that bringing the Premier League trophy back to Old Trafford is his main target after the Norweigan was today announced as Manchester United’s full-time manager.

Former Red Devils striker Solskjaer took over as caretaker boss back in December after Jose Mourinho had guided Manchester United to their worst ever start to a Premier League season.

Solskjaer has been nothing short of a revelation, winning 14 of the 19 games since he took over the reins, with the 46-year-old having unexpectedly steered United back into the race for the top four and through to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

Solskjaer won six Premier League titles as a player and he has admitted that United can’t wait too long before reclaiming the top-flight crown.

“To lift the Premier League trophy again is what we expect, what we’re used to, what we have done so many times,” he told the press at his first press conference as permanent manager.

“We can’t wait too many years but it’s not going to happen overnight.

Solskjaer also revealed that he is hopeful the clubs summer transfer business can be wrapped up before pre-season preparations begin.

“There are so many players that have been written about that we’re interested in and I’m sure when we decide what we have to do, hopefully we’ll get them by pre-season.”

United host Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday.
