Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s “incredible” start as caretaker manager at Manchester United.
Solskjaer has won his opening five matches after replacing Jose Mourinho in December – equalling Matt Busby’s record in a 2-0 FA Cup victory against Reading last week.
The 45-year-old Norwegian – appointed until the end of the season – could surpass Busby’s record with victory against Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday.
Asked about Solskjaer following Manchester City’s 9-0 humiliation of Burton Albion in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-finals on Wednesday, Guardiola reporters: “His start is much better than mine, I lost my first game and drew the second [after being appointed in 2016].
“He won all the games. He is a young manager, getting incredible results. I saw a few minutes of games they played and they played good.
“But it is not my business to talk about other opponents, we have a tough game around the corner against Wolves.
“It will be a tough game. We have one day off and then prepare for the game.”
Good job, fellas!
