Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not yet held talks with the Manchester United hierarchy about his future at the club.

The Norwegian has made the perfect start to his interim tenure at Old Trafford, becoming the first United manager since Sir Matt Busby to win his first four league games, leading to increased speculation that he may be given the job full-time.

Solskjaer said: “It’s early doors. Of course when I came in they were open and honest about they’re going to have a process looking for the next manager. But the more you’re here, the more you enjoy it.

“I’ve said one game at a time and the day they announce the next manager, if it’s me or someone else, good luck.”

Solskjaer’s fifth game is an FA Cup third-round clash with Championship strugglers Reading, where he will use the opportunity to rotate his squad.

Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku will start but in-form Paul Pogba, who may well have been rested anyway, is unlikely to be available because he is still feeling the effects of Jonjo Shelvey’s controversial challenge in the victory over Newcastle on Wednesday.

Solskjaer won the cup as a player and is targeting silverware as a manager, saying: “We’re about winning trophies of course.

“The FA Cup final is such a fantastic final. I played in the 1999 one at Wembley and, after having watched so many finals as a kid, to be able to make that long walk up from the dressing room to the pitch was fantastic. That’s what we hope for.”
