Lingard Backs Solskjaer For Full-Time Man United Job

Jesse Lingard has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to become Manchester United boss on a full-time basis and believes his side will mount a serious title challenge next season after ‘going back to basics’.

United are unbeaten since Solskjaer was given the reins until the end of the season following Jose Mourinho’s sacking, with the Norwegian guiding his side to an impressive nine wins from 10 games.

“Solskjaer and Mike Phelan have brought back the old school Manchester United. They know the league and the club inside out so to pass that on and get us playing how we are has been perfect, Lingard Told Sportsmail.

“Solskjaer is doing very well. Nobody can fault him. He has taken a lot on but he already knew what he was doing when he came in. He got the players backing him straight away.”

“He told us there are big expectations and pressure at this club but we have to deal with it and play like a real United team.”

“We will challenge for the title next season if we carry on how we are now. We’re back to basics and winning games by grinding out results or scoring a lot of goals. As long as we’re winning games that’s all that matters.”

Lingard, however, insists his team-mates will relish going up against Europe’s biggest teams in February.

“You want to play in those big games – that’s why you play football. The bigger the games, the better. You can’t get bigger than facing PSG in the Champions League at Old Trafford.”
