Here's an extract of his interview with Mark Sullivan...

Firstly Ole, how does it feel to become the permanent manager of this great club?
“It’s truly an honour. I think everyone knows, and I’ve spoken about it in the last few months, that this is the dream job for any football-interested man, especially anyone who has been involved with Man United. Being given the opportunity now to move the club forward, with all the potential there is, it’s fantastic.”

You’ve had great backing from our amazing fans, how does that feel?
“I’ve always had it but I have to say the last few months have been absolutely crazy with the way they’ve taken to the players, to me and to the coaching staff. We’ve really appreciated that support and hopefully we can pay them back now.”
