Wayne Rooney backs Ole Solskjaer to become fulltime Man United manager. Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December and has guided United to seven wins and a draw in the Premier League to make a compelling case for his appointment ahead of early bookmakers’ favourite Pochettino.

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deserves the chance to take over as permanent boss, while Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino is the best alternative, according to former club captain Wayne Rooney.

The Norwegian has helped United go within two points of the top four, while also reviving a free-flowing style of soccer that had gone missing under Mourinho.

“It’d be nice to see Ole Gunnar continue with this form and get a shot at the job on a permanent basis,” Rooney, United’s all-time record scorer, told CNN World Sport in an interview.

“But if not, if the club go to choose from somewhere else, then I think Pochettino would be the right guy.”

Pochettino has previously said he was fully committed to delivering results in his current job, but that has done little to quell speculation about his future at Tottenham.

The Argentine, who joined Tottenham from Southampton in 2014, has guided the London club to consecutive top-three finishes in the league, but he is yet to win a trophy.

Solskjaer said last week the owners of Norwegian club Molde, who sent him to Old Trafford with their blessing, had asked him to try to turn his temporary stint into a permanent role.

United are expected to make a decision on their manager at the end of the season. Solskjaer’s side face Fulham in the league on Saturday.
