Man Utd boss Solskjaer SHOOTS DOWN job decision over PSG Champions League outcome
The Red Devils host the French champions in their Champions League round of 16 first leg tomorrow night (8pm).
Manchester United are unbeaten since their former goalscorer returned to the club on an interim basis.
A spell of 10 wins from 11 games across all competitions puts them in good stead heading into the showdown with PSG.
But much talk prior to the game has been over whether it is time to hand Solskjaer the job permanently now.
United have always planned to wait until the summer to name Jose Mourinho’s full-time successor.
And asked today if it’s too simple to suggest a victory against PSG will secure him the job, Solskjaer swiftly replied: “Yes, it is too simple (to stay).
“You have so many ways of asking those questions.
“It is too simple, there are a few months left of this season”

“It is too simple, there are a few months left of this season.”
Solskjaer also denied matches like these are one of the reasons he took the job.
In his PSG pre-match press conference, he added: “No, but I would have said yes to the job if we didn’t play PSG or in Champions League when United ring you take the chance and you think you can help them.
“Of course its fantastic game to look forward to, a test for our whole team.
“Of course any team which are missing players like [Thomas] Meunier or [Edinson] Cavani are feeling the affect, but it will give their other players a chance.
“It makes it more unpredictable for us, this time around we are guessing a bit how they are going to come.”
