No managers have gotten an equally good start for Ole Gunnar Solskjær in the Premier League, either temporary or permanent coaches.
In the Manchester United you must go all the way back to the legend Sir Matt Busby to find a similar start in the English top flight, but the crew of the scot scored "only" 13 goals against Solskjærs 14 goals.
With Solskjær at the helm have Manchester United gone from eleven to six points behind the all important fourth place. The Norwegian should basically sit at the helm until the end of the season in may (or June if the red would get to the Champions League final).
Questions about Solskjærs future has already begun to emerge. After the Newcastle match got the Norwegian question if he is going to leave the club in may, and the answer was loud and clear:
I don't want it.
- It is such a great group of players and the atmosphere is wonderful.Early
Solskjær could probably not dreamed of a better start. Yes, the club has faced four teams who "always" lose against the top 6 teams, but that is the way the victories have come on the that impresses.
Solskjær got at Friday's press conference asked if he has talked with some of the Manchester United the lead about the fact that he does not want to leave the job in may.
- no, No, it's early. Of course, when I came in they were open and honest about that they would have a process and look for the next manager. But the longer you are here, the more enjoying it. But I have said that we must take one match at a time, and the day they announce the club's next manager, whether it is me or something else, so good luck to you, " says Solskjær diplomatic.
I wonder if Solskjær strong need to be included on the list of the candidates in the process. And if Norwegian want to strengthen the hope for that to happen, can he look to Chelsea and the hiring of Roberto Di Matteo.Solskjær: - If some of the players think it will be a holiday, taking the mistakes that Turned the trend
Before Solskjær was employed, it was seen as very difficult for the red to outwit PSG in the Champions League, in terms of how the team had emerged in the last matches. Now that optimism and glow is back in the club, is also the hope of success in football's most prestigious tournament renewed.
And it was just this tournament that was on a vicarious manager got a permanent job, when the London team Chelsea achieved a triumph in the Champions League.
Roberto Di Matteo was vicarious manager of Chelsea in march 2012 after sparkingen of André Villas-Boas, and would basically just sit out the season. The hire has many similarities with Solskjærs appearance in Manchester United.
Di Matteo even played six seasons in Chelsea and had experience as a coach at Milton Keynes Dons and West Bromwich.
Chelsea were three points away from fourth place and had lost 1-3 against Napoli in the first of two matches in åttedelsfinalen in the Champions League when Di Matteo was hired. There were few who left the blue in particular the success of the season.
But under Di Matteo began Chelsea to win matches again, and optimism began to spread. The season ended with Champions League gold medal after victory over Bayern Munich on the germans ' home turf Allianz Arena. Chelsea also won the FA cup with Di Matteo at the helm.
13. June 2012, nearly two months after he was hired as a vicarious manager, wrote Di Matteo during a toårskontrakt with the club. He had set the standard for itself and become a manager, the board could not ignore.
Can the same happen with Solskjær?
It goes with the story that Di Matteo was sacked as Chelsea manager in november 2012.GOT a PERMANENT JOB: Roberto Di Matteo. Photo: NTB Scanpix Show more - Just nonsense
Alan Shearer is among those who believe that Solskjær should get the job. TV 2-expert Erik Thorstvedt believes in his side that Alan Shearers statements about Solskjær comes premature, and that the discussion about Norwegian as a permanent solution can wait until later.
- It is nonsense to discuss whether he will extend the agreement now. Manchester United are going to take good time and not take a decision now, believes the former toppkeeperen.

If Manchester United were to come among the top four, it will be a great achievement considering where the club was when José ^ the academic degree awarded was fired in the club.
If the red should knock out PSG and get far in the Champions League - not to say all the way to the top - there will be a strong candidacy for Solskjær.
as long As Manchester United continues to win fights, will at least Solskjær be a step closer to a permanent job in the club.Shearer asks United to keep Solskjær: - Only nonsense, responds Thorstvedt
