Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed his delight at working with players who want to improve.


The Norwegian has been impressive and has had a positive impact on the Red Devils since replacing Jose Mourinho at the Old Trafford helm, winning nine and drawing one out of 10 games in all competitions.


“Whether it is back home with my daughter’s team or it’s this, I just love working with footballers who want to improve,” said Solskjaer, in an interview with Sky Sports.


“I love speaking to them and giving them my help and my thoughts. That’s what coaching is about. It’s about improving players. It’s not about anything but that really.”

Solskjaer wants his side to continue the momentum which has seen them go unbeaten since his arrival in December as he believes there’s enough quality in the Man United squad.


“You have to find a way to win a game,” he said. “That’s not up to me, Mike [Phelan], Kieran [McKenna] or Michael [Carrick] to tell them beforehand.


”Every game is different. We might score the first goal and it’s a different game. They [the opposition] might score the first goal and it’s a different game, so they [the players] have got to make decisions out there based on their experiences and qualities.


“Me and Mick came in and of course we wanted to bring confidence to the players, [to make them feel] that we trust them because we do.


”They are here because they are special. Manchester United never sign players if they don’t have any uniqueness or any 'X factor' about them.


“They should never forget what badge they are wearing because they are special.”
