Solskjaer: I won't ask Sir Alex for help

English Premier League

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he won't be asking for Sir Alex Ferguson's help if things get tough this season.

The Red Devils have hit a bit of bump in the Premier League, which has seen them slip seven points behind leaders Manchester City.

Despite the side's recent issues, the Norwegian insist he has not asked his former manager for advice.

“I’ve probably been influenced by Sir Alex by the 15 years I worked with him of course, but we’re different personalities," the United manager said, as per the Mirror.

“I manage the way I think is the right way – I don’t ask anyone how I should manage. It’s probably just in my personality.

“I loved working and playing under the gaffer and I learned a lot from him obviously. But it’s been a while since we had a conversation and I’ve not asked him how I should play this one or that one.

“It’s been gradual since I came to Manchester United, I have grown into becoming this person. It’s not been consciously something I’ve done, it’s just being myself.”
