PAUL INCE has finally admitted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should get the permanent boss' job at Manchester United – but still claims he could have turned it around himself.
The former United midfielder, 51, had previously suggested "anyone" could have done what the Norwegian did.

But he has since changed his tune, particularly in the aftermath of the heroic victory in Paris last night.
Ince told Paddy Power: “After the first few games for Ole at Old Trafford, I thought it was a bit premature to start saying he should get the job.
"We knew there was a cloud hanging over the club, we knew that the players were unmotivated and unhappy.
"But no one expected United to do what they did in Paris, and that’s down to Ole.

"It’s down to him getting the best out of his players, and using the right squad and tactics when under a lot of pressure last night.
"For me, looking at it now, there’s no reason why he shouldn’t get the job. The fans want Ole.
"If you come in and do what he’s done – got United to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and the FA Cup, and getting them into top four in the Premier League – he’s got to be the No1 choice.
"The most important thing is the Man United fans. And the fans are happy for the first time in a long time, so why would you want to change that?
