In his farewell interview, Ole said he was honored and privileged to have managed the club Manchester United and loved it so dearly. 

This club means the world to him, and he wants to achieve everything in this club. 

But unfortunately, he couldn’t get what he wanted. And it's time for him to step aside. 

He wants to make up for his lost time and be reunited with his family. But he said he would eventually return to the game. 

Even though he is apart from the club, he wants to look after the team, and hopefully, another manager will come, and he wants to support him as well. 

He wants the next manager to be successful. 

He is pretty sure he laid the foundations for that and said he knows he is good at what he does. 

He wants to create a football environment wherever he is and is sure he does it well and said he would probably be back in football.
