Man United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested he would like to be considered as club’s next permanent manager but says that possibility has not yet formed part of his talks with the club.

Red Devils, who sacked Jose Mourinho on Tuesday; have been heavily linked with a move for Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino in the summer once Solskjaer’s interim spell ends.

But the former United player, who will take charge of his first game at former club Cardiff City on Saturday; says his plans at Old Trafford extend beyond the next five months.

“When you get a job like this and they ask you to sign for six months you say ‘yes,'” he said in a press conference on Friday.

“I’m happy to help out and my job is to do as well as I can and they understand there are so many managers who would love to be manager of Manchester United; I’m one of them but it’s not something we’ve talked about, they’ll do a process for the next six months.”
