Solskjaer says that he is proud of his experience at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
, who had been under so much pressure for his poor performance asManchester United’s
head coach, was sacked on the weekend after their 4-1 defeat againstWatford
. Now he has talked about his experience as the Red Devils’ boss insisting that being in that position was a dream coming true despite the results and the criticism.
"Very, very proud. Of course, it’s one of those things you dream of in your life. When you’ve been a player, when you’ve been a reserve team coach, the next job then, the only dream and the only thing you haven’t done is to manage the club, and I have now,"
"It’s been a ball, it’s been absolutely enjoyable from the first to the last minute, so I have to thank all the players because since I came in, they’re top lads, top people. Some have come, some have gone, but all of them, they’ve been such an enjoyable bunch to work with.
"First of all, I want to thank the board and the owners for giving me the opportunity because it’s not for everyone and I’ve had the opportunity. I’m so honored and privileged to have been trusted to take the club forward, and I really hope that I leave it in a better state than when I came.
"I’ve made great friends, I’ve reconnected with some great friends, new staff coming in I’ve become really good friends with.
"The other staff that was here when I was there, we’re good friends and we have connected and that’s what it’s about at a club like this. With the fans, the fans have been amazing. From day one at Cardiff until the last one now. [They’ve been] top, and we’ll see each other again."
The former Red Devils’ star has also thanked all the people in the club and said that he is going to spend some time with his family after this job.
"I’ll spend some time with my family. That’s been probably the most difficult part, through the pandemic, with Norway being open and here being closed, my family moved back to Norway and the young one, he loves it back there, so we’ve lived apart.
"So, I’ll spend some time with them. Then, I’ll watch the team of course and hopefully, the next manager comes in and I want to support him.
"I want him to be successful, hopefully I’ve laid the foundations for that to happen because I know I’m good at what I’m doing. I’m a hundred per cent sure to create a football environment, that’s where I’m good at and at some point, I’ll probably be back [working in football]."
