Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appreciates the support the board has given him.

Solskjaer doesn't consider himself fireproof – and stressed he didn't want to compare his own situation to how Chelsea run things – but Ed Woodward and the board have given the Norwegian time to build. The panic button wasn't pressed when United failed to qualify for the latest knockout stages of the Champions League.

He said, "We had a very open, honest discussion when I came in and laid down my plans. The club made a decision and agreed with me some of the changes we had to make.

"Of course I am not going to say it will never happen that we change course, you need results and to see improvements, and hopefully we have proved to the club and fans what we want as a staff from the team and our players.

"I feel my squad now is more full of younger players that can improve. I have a strong squad, a deep squad. I can't say if it's going to be X amount of signings in the summer. We still look at players and it has to be the right one.

"We look at the squad every window and see what is out there, see what we feel we need."
