(SOUNDBITE) (English) OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER, REPLYING TO A QUESTION ASKING IF MANCHESTER UNITED WIN THE NEXT THREE GAMES HE WILL GET THE JOB FULL TIME, SAYING: "That's too simple, there's still a few months left of this season for me to do whatever I can for the club." STORY: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Monday (February 11) that now is the perfect time for Manchester United to face Paris St Germain in their Champions League round-of-16 clash.
Solskjaer took over as caretaker manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December and United have secured 10 wins in 11 games under his charge, their latest victory a 3-0 win at Fulham on Saturday.
United brought in Solskjaer as caretaker until the end of the season when they will make a decision on the next permanent manager.
When the draw was made for this fixture, Solskjaer was still at his Norwegian club Molde but now he has the chance to savour a big European night at Old Trafford.
As a player under Alex Ferguson, Solskjaer enjoyed many such nights -- including grabbing the stoppage-time winner in the 1999 final against Bayern Munich in Barcelona.
