It's in Woodward hands but we have good relationship' - Ole gives hopes to fans

The interim Old Trafford manager is at the centre of fervent speculation about whether - or when - he will get the job on a permanent basis

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has a 'good relationship' with Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward as speculation grows over whether he will be handed the manager's job on a permanent basis before the end of the season.

The Norweigian, named as interim Old Trafford boss when he succeeded the sacked Jose Mourinho in December, says he talks to the 47-year-old 'almost every day'.

United initially indicated they would make a decision on who gets the job at the end of the campaign after 'loaning' their former player from his Norwegian club Molde.

But Solskjaer has led United to 14 wins from 18 games in all competitions - and the quarter-finals of the Champions League - and his impressive performance in the role has sparked talk that he will be handed an extended contract.

"I have the job until the end of the season of season," Solskjaer told the Fotballklubben podcast.

"That's what I relate to. So I've been told to continue trying and doing what I think is right for Manchester United.

"Ed is the one with the responsibility [to make the decision]. I have a very good relationship with him. We talk a lot, almost every day."

Solskjaer, who suffered the first Premier League defeat of his reign when United went down 2-0 at Arsenal on Sunday, revealed Woodward contacted him by text to ask him if he would take over from Mourinho
