GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thanked the Manchester United board for sticking with him on his long-term plan to get the club back on course for the title.
He said: “Hopefully I have proven that I can help the club going forwards and, personally, I have felt very strong backing and leadership from the club, which has made the journey that we’ve been on — ups and downs — clear.
“We have always sat down and had a long-term view on it. It is up to every club how they run the team but sometimes consistency and patience will be rewarded.”
Meanwhile, United will have to wait until the spring to re-commence talks over Jadon Sancho, it has been claimed.
German journalist Raphael Honigstein has told Sky Sports that a move in January is off the table.
Instead clubs could reportedly begin negotiations in the spring for a switch at the end of the season.
Borussia Dortmund are seen as unlikely to lower their valuation of the 20-year-old with two-and-a-half-years left on his contract.
Finally, Solskjaer admits Amad Diallo is nearly ready to make his Man Utd debut.
The boss said: “It might be quicker than that (five weeks). I can’t see it being too long until he’s in the squad.
“He’s definitely settled down well. The players have taken to him, he’s a good character, polite, smiley boy who works really hard.
“He’s doing his sessions and getting used to us. There’s always a period of adjustment needed but he’s settling in well.
“He can handle the ball, he’s enjoyed training and he makes a difference in training, which is quite remarkable at his age.”
