Solskjaer's expected to make a number of changes as United host Reading at Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.
"[To] get to summer and people are talking about the way Man United are playing", he said, when asked what he believed would constitute "success" and be enough to earn the permanent role.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to add a new centre-half to the Manchester United team in the January transfer window, according to a report in England. We really need them so a lot of good things to take from today's performance.
"I think the more games you play, you mentioned he's played almost 150 games now, I think having a manager who's been a striker, who's been in those positions can speak to you in a way I guess maybe others haven't been able to".
During a 13-year career at United, he made nearly 400 appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson, winning five Premier League titles, a Champions League, three League Cups and an FA Cup.

Newcastle did just that in February previous year when United left Tyneside on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline thanks to Matt Ritchie's strike.
"We've got the FA Cup on Saturday morning, 12.30pm kick-off".
"But what if Solskjaer wins them a trophy?"

For, with United looking reinvigorated and Solskjaer reprising the old Midas touch that famously saw him come off the bench against Bayern Munich to win the Champions League for United in 1999, he must still know the impossible is possible.
"The style we're playing, it reminds us of Sir Alex's team".
"It's such a great bunch of players, a fantastic atmosphere, but it's the next game, it's the next game, it's the next game and I'm doing my job as long as I'm here".
Rashford said: "Hard work was the key, we had to persist throughout the game".
Tahith Chong and Mason Greenwood are huge youth prospects from the academy and now would be the flawless time to hand them their first-team debuts.
