Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with the direction his club are heading.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident the Red Devils are heading in the right direction and only cares about the future of the club, not his own. Solskjaer's United side are 13th in the Premier League table ahead of Sunday's trip to in-form Southampton.

Solskjaer, who has often come under scrutiny for his position, sees his contract at Old Trafford expire at the end of next season.

However, the United legend is fully focused on achieving the club's objectives rather than his own situation.

"We live in a results business and all I want is for Man United to improve as a team and as a club," Solskjaer said.

"I have very good dialogue with the club all of the time.

"You have to think long-term and short-term – and I would never ever think that this is my chance to prove a point and that it's all about me.

"That's not what it's about here. Every decision I make is for the good of Manchester United.

"For me, it's about results and if we keep improving we have a very good opportunity because this team and this squad is going places.”

United are on a run of three successive wins in all competitions and seven away from home in the Premier League.

Solskjaer has hailed the consistency from his team since the turn of the year and is confident things are only heading in one direction.

He added: “Teams that win the league put good runs together, consistent ones. I know this season is more uncertain, but if you look at the last 40 games with this team, we win two draw one, win two lose one. So we are getting consistent.

"Look at the stats since we got the latest transfers and since Bruno [Fernandes] came in.

"Since the Burnley game, only Liverpool have taken more points, so we are getting there. We are getting better and better.

"We did not start the league campaign on a par with everyone else because of Europe and a pre-season we didn’t have.

"Now we are showing what we’re capable of. If we carry on improving and keep the mindset, I am very sure we will move up.

"This season is very unpredictable and the main thing is to keep the right mindset.

"You can forgive any mistake as long as you have the right mindset and approach - and I feel we are getting there.”
