Ole reacts to new United deal

It feels like a really exciting time, just as it has been under your tenure. We’ve seen such progress so what now will be the next step for you and the team?
“We’re here to win of course. I can’t say we’re delighted with what’s happened so far because we haven’t won anything, but still, like what I’ve just said, the progress is there and I feel the squad is in a much better place and I think we’re gradually getting there by just what we’re doing every single day. We haven’t got a trophy to show for it, but I think we feel stronger and ready for the next challenge.”

How important is it for you to have that stability and the backing of the club?
“Ever since day one when I came in, even as a player, I’ve felt the backing on this club. Now of course after I signed the deal to be the manager the first time around we sat down and had a plan and there hasn’t been one moment where I’ve felt I’ve had to look over my shoulder. We have a plan, we stick to it, we know there will be bumps in the road, but now here we are and we want to step forward.”

You’ve already overcome many a challenge in your tenure, but is one of the biggest obstacles you’ve had to overcome being away from your family for long spells?
“Yes of course, that’s not nice and with the pandemic it’s a difficult position to be in, but that’s part and parcel of life. You can’t [travel] easily without quarantining, but it seems like it’s opening up. That’s been the toughest challenge definitely.”
