Teddy Sheringham reckons Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already been given the Manchester United manager’s job permanently.
The former Red Devils striker let slip that he’s heard the Norwegian has been handed the reins on a full-time basis behind the scenes, but didn’t confirm when the club is likely to announce the news.
Solskjaer has made an encouraging start since taking over from Jose Mourinho in December and has guided the Red Devils back into top four contention as well as the quarter finals of this season’s Champions League.
He recently told BBC 5Live: “I’ve heard they’ve given it to him already.”
Manchester United have lost their past two matches in all competitions, and this is arguably the first time Solskjaer has felt the heat since taking the reins.
But Sheringham doesn’t believe this little setback will affect him getting the job.
“Last two games [there has been] a bit of a blip but I think he’s been a breath of fresh air to be honest,” Sheringham added on BBC One.
“I think there was a lot of people surprised when he first got the job.
“He’s come in and he’s brought in all the old traditions of what Sir Alex used to portray to us: what it’s like to play for Manchester United, the privilege of the players and all the players that have played before us, you know, a real honour to wear the shirt.
“I think that’s been instilled in the players again. They’ve got a life about them. A desire to work hard for the shirt and really put in a shift.”
