Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reacted to comments made by his predecessor on the topic of player power.

The Norwegian replaced Mourinho as United's coach on an interim contract until the end of the season and has since turned the fortune of the club around following a rough start to the season.

With the Manchester side winning all of their six games since the arrival of the 45-year-old.

Mourinho was guest on beIN Sports yesterday for his first major interview since he left the Manchester Club. The 55-year-old was in a bullish mood as he aimed subtle digs at his former employers.

Solskjaer held a press conference ahead of Manchester United's Premier League game tomorrow and was asked his thoughts about Mourinho's comments.

I can’t really comment on everything he says and I’m enjoying working with these boys and that’s all I can say,” the former United striker answered.

The Portuguese ruled out retirement from his plans, stating that he still has more years to manage at 'the top level of football', a claim Solskjaer agrees to.

Yeah, why shouldn’t he? Because he’s a fantastic manager and, with the results he’s had, I don’t think he’ll be struggling to find work.

The Red Devils would look to make it seven wins from seven when they host Brighton at the Theatre of Dreams as they aim to close in on a top four place.

You go into every single game at Manchester United, as a player or a manager, thinking you’re going to win. That’s just the nature of this club.
We’ve had six good games but the next one is always the important one. Everyone said about Tottenham being the test - I don’t think that is the test in the respect of attitude, because you know the players are going to be up for that.
I want the players to be confident, but I don’t want them to be complacent and take their foot off the pedal.
That’s a big difference for me. I want them going in there full of confidence, taking people on, playing, running, passing forward, getting the crowd with them because that’s what it’s about.

Solskjaer will become the first manager in the club’s history to win his first seven games if the Red Devil manage a win against Brighton on Saturday.
