Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not appear to be a nervous man.
With Pochettino out of a job and Jose back in the Premier League, it might be Ole next who gives Mauricio his place to complete the circle. However, despite his struggles, Ole has kept a brave face when asked about his future and the appointment of Mourinho.
‘Sorry to disappoint but it’s not gonna be about Jose or Mauricio,’ said Solskjaer when asked to comment on Daniel Levy’s decision to dispense with Mauricio Pochettino and hire Mourinho. ‘I can start with it’s good to have Jose back definitely especially for you guys and maybe for me, you can talk and write about everything else and for Mauricio it’s always sad when one of your colleagues, a good man loses job before Christmas, I wish him all the best.’
‘No, it doesn’t bother me at all, I’ve got the best job in the world and if you’re in or out of a job you want this job, so it doesn’t really matter whatever happens around it. ‘I’ve got to focus on my job at Manchester United, do it as well as we can, speak with Ed and the owners all the time about how we move forward and that doesn’t change if others change managers.’
