Cape Town - Manchester United's Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been named the Premier League manager of the month for January.
"It means we’ve been the team of the month, both the staff and the players, so we’ve done well," said Solskjaer.
"We want to be winning games, we want to move up the table and this is the start of it."
The Red Devils are currently unbeaten under Solskjaer's tutelage - winning nine matches while being held against Burnley in a comeback draw at Old Trafford.
"The more you know the culture of the club, the culture of the players and the way that we have been successful, that has helped me," he said.
"I’ve got some fantastic coaches, I have to say, Kieran [McKenna], Michael [Carrick], they’re brilliant.
"Emilio Alvarez’s working with the best goalkeeper in the world and to bring Micky [Phelan] in with me is very reassuring because he’s so calm and experienced.
"You cannot be a good leader or a manager without good players, you can’t get results without the players, so ultimately it’s how they respond to what we tell them and they’ve been fantastic, so all credit to them."
United can extend their unbeaten streak on Saturday when they travel to the Craven Cottage for a Premier League clash against relegation threatened Fulham.
Kick-off is at 14:30 (SA time).
