Pep Guardiola Speaks Out About Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s Impressive Start As Manchester United Boss

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has offered his two cents on Ole Gunnar Solskjær's time as Manchester United boss.

The 45-year-old Norwegian was appointed caretaker manager after the sacking of José Mourinho last year.

Since the arrival of the ex-Red Devils forward in December, United have experienced a revival under his leadership and have won all five of their matches across all competitions.

Speaking after City's 9-0 demolition of Burton Albion in the EFL Cup, the former Barcelona boss had strong words of endorsement for Solskjær.

"His start is much better than mine, I lost my first game and drew the second [after being appointed in 2016]," he said (via the Manchester Evening News).

"He won all the games. He is a young manager, getting incredible results. I saw a few minutes of games they played and they played good.

"But it is not my business to talk about other opponents, we have a tough game around the corner against Wolves [in the Premier League on Monday night].

"It will be a tough game. We have one day off and then prepare for the game."

Solskjær has already admitted that he wants to stay on as United boss beyond his caretaker duties.

He suggested that one way he could potentially be offered the role on a permanent basis would be if his side played with the same flair and prowess as Sir Alex Ferguson's teams once did.

"If we get to the summer and people are talking about the way Manchester United are playing," he explained (via the Guardian).

"The style we're playing -- [if] it reminds us of Sir Alex's team. It has to start with the way we play, because results you cannot control. You can control how you approach the game and how you play.

"And, of course, trophies. If you can get to the final of the FA Cup and get a trophy [that might be a factor]. Let's see in May if it's [my tenure is] a success or not."

Will Solskjær become the next permanent manager of United?
