Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he has not made any moves to resolve his future, with his current contract due to expire in the summer of 2022.

Now Solskjaer has confirmed he has not bee approached by United to discuss his long-term future, with his push for trophy success this season likely to be pivotal in what happens next.

"I have not thought about that, and we have not discussed it at all. I am just focusing on doing my job and part of the job is to stabilise things," Solskjaer told VG.

"We have a job to do in order to find consistency on the pitch. Outside the pitch it is still a crisis if you lose a game.

"If you concede a goal in stoppage time against Everton, it still creates big headlines. That can happen in football.

"But on the inside it is more stable. We feel like we are on our way towards what we sat down and discussed, what we planned.

"I know that there has been a lot of criticism and discussions about one thing or another, but if you first set a course, then I at least have so much faith in myself that I do not waver too much."

United are preparing to take on Real Sociedad in the Europa League on Thursday night, with victory in the second string UEFA competition arguably the most probably route to success for Solskjaer this season.
