Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to get into a slagging match with Jose Mourinho and says the Portuguese coach is entitled to his opinion after he slammed Manchester Uniteds display against West Ham.

The former Old Trafford boss, who was axed last season and replaced by Solskjaer, claims he doesnt see any improvement from the team he managed and says there were no positives for the side to take from Sundays defeat.
