The man called, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he is preparing for life at Manchester United next season, making plans for the summer transfer window and even featuring in club season-ticket promotions.
The caretaker manager has led United to 12 wins in his first 15 games in charge after replacing Jose Mourinho, but the club has made no announcement yet regarding a long-term appointment.
Yet Solskjaer has explained that he continues to plan ahead even if he is not making any assumptions that he will be handed the role beyond the end of the current campaign.
“Yes I have. We’ve been discussing the future of the club,” he told reporters on Friday when asked whether he had suggested playing squad changes for next season.
“We did that before I had won two or three games and all this talk about if I should stay or not. My contract is up in the summer but I still, as I’ve always done for Man United, give my 100 per cent and my best.
“You have to plan. Even if I’m not here, I still give my view on who I would like to see as a supporter.
“I’ve done a video shoot on season tickets so I’m pleading for them to get their season tickets,” he added. “If it’s me as a supporter or manager I don’t know, but they should still buy their season tickets because the club is going somewhere.”
