Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deserves the chance to take over as permanent boss while Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino is the best alternative, according to former club captain Wayne Rooney.

Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December and has guided United to seven wins and a draw in the Premier League to make a compelling case for his appointment ahead of early bookmakers’ favourite Pochettino.

The Norwegian has helped United go within two points of the top four while also reviving a free-flowing style of soccer that had gone missing under Mourinho.
