Ander Herrera says that he would appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United’s new manager if it were up to him.

The Norwegian has been earning lots of praise for the impact he has had at Old Trafford since having taken over from Jose Mourinho on an interim basis back in December.

Manchester United are unbeaten in the Premier League since he took over and they have been earning rave reviews for their improved style of play following his appointment.

The Red Devils’ fine form has inevitably led to suggestions that Solskjaer could be handed the Manchester United job on a permanent basis this summer.

And Herrera, who himself has been in top form of late, admits that he would like to see the former striker take charge permanently.

Speaking in an interview with FourFourTwo, as quoted by Sky Sports, Herrera said: “If I was sporting director of a club tomorrow, I would sign Ole. But I respect the people that take the decisions and I’m not going to say what they should do.

“Ole has a quality that is difficult to have in football, which is to have the affection of all the players – the players who play and the ones who don’t play as much.

“I don’t know how he did it, but he had that click with players who can change games. He’s clicked with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard.”

Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Sunday when they travel to Arsenal in the top flight.

The Red Devils are looking to keep their place in the top four as they bid to secure Champions League qualification in Solskjaer’s first campaign in charge of the club.
