Jurgen Klopp: What I really think of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Man United
Jurgen Klopp has his say on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's situation as Man United boss
Jurgen Klopp is confident that Manchester United will appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club’s new permanent manager this summer.
The Norwegian has been earning lots of praise for the impact he has had at Old Trafford since being brought in on an interim basis following the sacking of Jose Mourinho back in December.
Solskjaer has dramatically turned around Manchester United’s form to haul them firmly back into the running for a top-four finish.
He has also guided them past the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea FC and into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup as he seeks a major trophy this season.
And Liverpool FC boss Klopp has admitted that he cannot envisage a situation where Manchester United do not bring Solskjaer in on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
Speaking at a news conference on Friday before Liverpool FC’s clash with Man United on Sunday, Klopp said: “There is no doubt that he will be the manager next year as well, that’s clear.
“Can you imagine one situation when they say ‘We are bringing in another manager?’ Then a new manager will lose one game and that’s not possible.
“He deserves [the job] 100 per cent – he did everything that you have to do to be successful with them.”
Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Wednesday night with a trip to Crystal Palace.
They will then host Southampton next Saturday before the return leg of their Champions League last 16 clash with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday 6 March.
