D.C. United's Wayne Rooney thinks he still has Premier League quality

Mauricio Pochettino should manage Manchester United if not Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Wayne Rooney No Paul Ince – you couldn’t have done Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job at Manchester United

Manchester United have impressed since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's arrival, but Claudio Ranieri is optimistic Fulham can end their unbeaten run.

He told CNN: "It'd be nice to see Ole Gunnar continue with this form and get a shot at the job on a permanent basis".

Having returned to boyhood club Everton for last season, the former England worldwide joined D.C United in Major League Soccer.

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.

And, if Solskjaer is able to navigate the Red Devils past Paris Saint-Germain into the last 16 of the Champions League, as well as finish in the top four of the Premier League (something that seemed impossible just a few months ago), United's top brass may decide that he's done enough to win the job outright.

United sit just two points behind Chelsea and can end this weekend in fourth place if they beat struggling Fulham at Craven Cottage and Maurizio Sarri's team lose at Manchester City on Sunday.

Rooney was the embodiment of Sam Allardyce's stodgy Everton era; a slow-paced player for a side who needs more dynamism than that.

Following a awful start to the Premier League under Jose Mourinho, a top-four spot would ensure Champions League glory for Solskjaer's men and would mark a laudable achievement for the Norwegian tactician.

First of all, although Ince has been managing longer than Solskjaer, he did not manage the Manchester United Reserves or any of the other youth sides - whereas the latter has.

Do you agree that Paul Ince could never have done the tremendous job that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done at Manchester United?

Rashford has scored six goals since the former Manchester United striker became their new manager nearly two months ago.

And Wayne Rooney feels the Norwegian deserves a chance if they don't lure Mauricio Pochettino from Tottenham.

"I remember him as a player, against Chelsea". "He shows the players are with him". He was a fantastic player.
