  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has guided Manchester United to nine wins in 10 games in all

"I am delighted to have signed a new contract".

Solskjaer has helped turn the club's results around since taking temporary charge in December and believes United need to rethink their transfer policy.

Manchester United's Jesse Lingard celebrates at the end of the Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium in London January 13, 2019. "Manchester United has been a big part of my life for eight years and I love everything about this club".

"The club and the team can, yes", Solskjaer said when asked if United are good enough to compete for all trophies.

On the BT Sports show Saturday Morning Savage, the 51-year-old claimed that, if he had been appointed instead of Solskjaer after the sacking of Jose Mourinho, he would've gone on to make the same impact.

"He's gone in there and put a smile on people's faces and got the rewards, because they look an outstanding team all of a sudden again".

The priority for United - who will move above Chelsea into fourth if they beat Fulham at Craven Cottage this lunchtime in what Solskjaer called a "character revealer" - is to sign a pedigree centre-half this summer, with Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly among the targets.

"It will reveal do we have the focus on what's important, which is always the next game and can we forget about PSG".

"They're at that age where we expect them to take that responsibility and not just be a young boy that floats around".

Phil Jones has become the latest player to commit his future to Manchester United, with the defender signing a new deal until at least 2023.

The Red Devils are in red hot form at the moment under Solskjaer and it will be intriguing to see how they fare in the tough fixtures after the game against the Cottagers.

"You can not be a good leader or a manager without good ultimately it's how they respond to what we tell them and they've been fantastic, so all credit to them".
