What's the news?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that he is used to the club challenging for trophies, and that's where he sees this team in the future.

In case you didn't know...

Many people questioned Ole Gunnar Solksjear's abilities when he was appointed as Manchester United's caretaker manager earlier this season, however, he has proven all his critics wrong, and is doing a great job at the club.

The Red Devils are currently unbeaten under him and have won 9 games out of 10 since his arrival. They are currently fifth on the Premier League table, and will now be looking forward to finishing in the 'top-four'.

The heart of the matter

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer outlined his long-term vision for the club to the executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, and the Norwegian believes that United's vision must only be about winning trophies.

He said:

"If we don't dream, if we don't have that vision of where we are going then we will just falter so for me I am only used to this club challenging for trophies. That is where I see us."
"You have got to catch up with the teams ahead of us, especially Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham. They are in the run-in.

He also believes that his team can win the Premier League next season.

"It is three teams that have been far ahead but we have beaten Tottenham so we know we are capable of that but we need the consistency.
"But two years' time is long enough but also short enough to say we have got the possibility to make a big difference in our preparation, everything.
"Next year you always hope of course. I came in at Molde - they were 10th in 2010 and 2011 we won the league. You can never say never.

What's next?

Manchester United will play Fulham later today before hosting PSG at Old Trafford for the first leg of the Champions League round-of-16 match on February 12.
