Solskjaer says he has full support of Man Utd board: We're knocking the house down

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has the full support of the board.

Solskjaer, who succeeded Jose Mourinho over a year ago, still has the support of the Old Trafford board and the 46-year-old insisted he has been "trusted" to rebuild the squad.

"When you start on something you stick to that plan. I'm not going to change, six, nine or 10 months into the job and believe in a different way.

"The foundation has to be laid and the culture properly set and laid down. This group is a good core of players who believe in what we're doing to carry us forward with signings and players coming back.

"You need to knock the house down, you don't just start with the roof. We've had some rainy days and wish that roof was on, but we can't hide.

"All my conversations with the club have been positive."
