He then personally mentioned that he was taking after one of the club’s legendary Manager’s, Busby, who had five consecutive wins at the beginning of his career at Manchester United.

Still, on whether he’ll stay, Solskjaer later explained,  “That will be in the books, but it’s nothing that I’m thinking of,” said Solskjaer. “I’m just thinking about the next game because if you win four, you can win another four at this club. That’s the challenge and that’s the standard that we’re known for.

“The gaffer (Ferguson) used to challenge us on them and of course when we’ve won four, you can go onto the next four and think about them.”
