Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl feels Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man for the Manchester United job citing his “outrageous” success since his appointment.

But Hasenhuttl is optimistic of ending Solskjaer’s unbeaten Premier League run on Saturday, not minding their position on the log.

Solskjaer’s only loss till date has come in the European scene against PSG, with United boasting an unbeaten run in the Premier League and FA Cup with 9 wins and 2 draws.

When asked if he thinks United will give Solskjaer the job on a permanent basis at some stage, Hasenhuttl replied via Sky Sports: “I think they will.

“To be unbeaten [in the league] since he took the job is amazing, it is outrageous.

“I think, with his history of being a player at Manchester United and now doing it as a manager in a very good way, I think you can’t have better science to be the next manager.”

The Saints are fighting for their lives with only two points above the drop zone after defeating Fulham on Wednesday night.

He said: “During the time of Alex Ferguson, no one wants to go to Old Trafford, because they knew there is nothing to get.

“The years after, one or other team could take points there.

“At the moment it seems that it is going back to this situation, that it is very hard to take points at Old Trafford.

“But my team does not think in that way – we know we can be a good opponent in every stadium for every team, if we are very organised, as we showed against Chelsea (a 0-0 draw) for example, where it is not easy to take a point.

“I am positive – we had a very important win on Wednesday and now we go with not much pressure, because nobody expects something from us.”
