Solskjaer: I worked to spending cap at Man Utd

Former Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer defended his time in charge of the club.

The Red Devils initially employed Solskjaer on a caretaker basis, which led to him earning the permanent job.

Despite two consecutive top four finishes, Solskjaer was eventually shown the door.

Solskjaer admits there was a cap on transfers he could bring in, telling The Athletic: "I can't remember every signing I made, but I should because there was a cap on three main ones every season."

"I signed up for it when I arrived. I understood my remit and agreed to it," he added.

"I can't complain now and I'm not the type to moan after losing my job, but United have spent a lot more in the two summer transfer windows since I was there."
