EPL: Solskjaer reveals what he must do to become Man Utd’s permanent manager
Manchester United’s interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted that winning trophies is the only measure of success at the club.
Solskjaer will be aiming to make it nine wins on Tuesday when Burnley visit Old Trafford.

“We’ve got the Champions League, we’ve got the FA Cup, we can’t just say top-four and that’s it.
“We’ve got to look at, ‘Can we win something this year?’ And I go into every single game as United manager thinking we can win.
“We’re about winning trophies, of course we are.
“We can’t win the league this year, but we’re still in the FA Cup, so we’re going to try to win it, of course. I think every manager wants to win every game, so I don’t think that’s the point he was making.
“If you win trophies that’s a fantastic day for everyone in the club.
“It’s just the best time of your life, that day when you win, because you never know when the next one is going to come.

“I’m just saying that we, here at this club, we’re looking to win trophies,” he told a press conference on Monday.
