Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken a cheeky dig at Jose Mourinho after claiming ‘a lot needed to change’ after taking over from the former United boss.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jose Mourinho were set to dominate headlines with the pair scheduled to take on each other when United would have played Tottenham on Sunday.

With the Premier League cancelling all football until April 3rd, that would no longer happen this weekend but the United boss still had his say on what would have been an entertaining battle.

Rather than praise the Portuguese, Solskjaer insisted he inherited a mess from Mourinho and things at United were in a bad place.

“I felt a lot needed to be changed,” Solskjaer said as per ESPN.

“I believe that we’re going places. I believe that we’re on the track that Man United need to be on.

United are now on an 11-game unbeaten run after dispatching LASK Linz 5-0 in the Europa League.

That has helped ease the pressure on Solskjaer who believes he is the right man for United after a recent change in their fortunes.

“I think I’m the right man but I’m not going to sit here and talk about that,” Solskjaer added.

“The proof is in the pudding at the end of the day.”

United are just three points behind fourth placed Chelsea in the Premier League and are now firmly in the running for Champions League places.
