Exclusive: 47-year-old boss confirms no talks with Man Utd over contract extension


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he is focused on the job at hand and is not in discussions with the club over extending his deal.

The Norwegian penned a three-year deal back in 2019, meaning he is midway through his tenure at the Theatre of Dreams.

Ole achieved a top-four finish in his first full campaign at the club and they have reached four semi-finals in that time, though they have lost on every occasion.

Reports last week stated United wanted to extend Ole’s deal by a further two years considering the club’s fleeting title challenge.

But the Norwegian insists he’s not held negotiations with the Red Devils over an extension, even if Solskjaer insists he’s come through with his promise of stabilising United.

‘I have not thought about that, and we have not discussed it at all. I am just focusing on doing my job and part of the job is to stabilise things,’ said Ole.

‘On the inside it is more stable. We feel like we are on our way towards what we sat down and discussed, what we planned.

‘I know that there has been a lot of criticism and discussions about one thing or another. But if you first set a course, then I at least have so much faith in myself that I do not waver too much.’

United have won just one of their last five games in the Premier League, leaving them ten points behind leaders Manchester City.
