It’s not strange doing it, though. My kids if they see a commercial with me in it and I’m back home in Norway – that will be strange.”Everyone knows I’d like to stay of course, but that’s not decided until the end of the season. But if it’s me as a supporter or manager they should still buy their season tickets because the club is going somewhere.”United are currently fifth in the table with 55 points from 28 matches but Solskjaer said they were planning for Champions League soccer next season.”My contract is up in the summer but as I’ve always done for United I give my best because you have to plan, even if I’m not here I still give my view on who I would like to see here as a supporter,” Solskjaer added.advertisement”You don’t want to plan for Europa League yet. We’re hoping and planning that we will get into the Champions League for next year. We’ll take that as it comes.”Also Read | Manchester United face mutiny if Solskjaer isn’t named permanent boss, says Gary NevilleAlso Read | Manchester United cannot go years without league title, says Ole Gunnar SolskjaerAlso Read | Fred must seize his chance to shine, says Ole Gunnar SolskjaerFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
