I get my coaching style from Fergie - Solskjaer

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who was sacked recently from the club, has stated that he has a future without the team and so does the United's squad.

Manchester United's caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer vowed to "move the club forward" on Friday in his first press conference at the helm of the world famous club.

Solskjaer begins his United reign away to Cardiff - whom he coached in 2014 - on Saturday at the end of a hectic week at the Old Trafford club. "I don't get it".

"And I just hope that you media respect this".

Solskjaer said: "Of course, I have watched the Premier League, I have seen all the teams". What I think i can improve them on.

United have turned to their former Norway worldwide striker Solskjaer on a deal until the end of the season to inject some life into what has been a fraught campaign.

"After almost five years, what more do I need to say?" he asked.

"First game, I think about getting my principles into the boys, get the players to understand how I want them to play and how we want to play as a team and let's take the results later on", he said.

The former striker has promised to bring attacking football back to Old Trafford following months of poor performances and vowed to continue the clubs long history of giving youth a chance.

"I have been trying with Nicky [Butt] a couple of times to get players on loan to Molde, so yes I have kept an eye on the academy", Solskjaer said.

Guardiola's side travel to Leicester City on Boxing Day and he said his players will train at the Etihad Campus on Christmas Day before travelling down to the East Midlands.

Jose Mouriho believes Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes conspired against him to get him the sack at Manchester United.

"We've got a great set-up. I've already been in touch with him, there's no one to get better advice from".

"I can't wait to help the team!"

The Norwegian told MUTV that he wanted to see the players "express themselves" during the rest of the campaign.

Mourinho's tenure included a Europa League crown and a League Cup trophy, while the club also remains in the Champions League this season heading into a Round of 16 clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

"Whatever has happened has happened and everyone starts with a clean slate".

He said: "You certainly get to see the players in a game, in a pressure situation, but I think the amount of games coming up is no problem because you've got this incredible squad of players".
