Solskjaer brightens Man United skies but gloom may quickly return

Solskjaer brightens Man United skies but gloom may quickly return


Solskjaer, who says he has already spoken with Ferguson about his appointment, believes his old boss was the ideal mentor for his coaching career.

Solskjaer was appointed caretaker manager on Tuesday morning after the club sacked Jose Mourinho from his duties, and many jumped to criticise the appointment, pointing out his record at Cardiff City back in 2014 among other things.

While public condemnation of his players is unlikely, former team-mates have said the forward, who scored United's injury-time victor in the 1999 Champions League final, was never afraid to deliver sharp words during his playing days if he felt standards were slipping.

Solskjaer's first game will be against Cardiff on Saturday before United head into a hectic Christmas period but the new boss has no excuses heading into his first game.

"Maybe I should get the hairdryer out of my pocket because I've got a hairdryer".

Soslkjaer watched Monday's FA Youth Cup win against Chelsea where Mason Greenwood, 17, scored a superb hat-trick, while the club's young forwards Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes, and midfielder James Garner have also been touted as future prospects. No matter what team you're coaching, they all want to have a picture of how you want to play.

"You might come on and make an impact".

Making sure his star men have enough leeway to produce their best football but enough restraint to keep them toeing the line will be his biggest task between now and May.

Asked about the reception from the players, he added: "They're footballers, they're happy, it has been a good mood".

"For United, a top-four finish under Solskjaer is going to be hard - though not impossible", Berbatov, who spent four years at Old Trafford from 2008, told Betfair.

He will send out his team for the first time against Cardiff, where he endured a hard nine months as manager in 2014, in the Premier League on Saturday, the first of four games in 12 days over the holiday period.

"Football is developing, the structure of the club has developed, but the power is with the manager". What I think i can improve them on.

They didn't stop there, rejuvenated Arsenal failed to pick maximum points against the recently promoted team.

The Norwegian said: "The amount of games coming up is no problem because we've got quality players and they'll get a chance to show that they're Man Utd players".

"I'm really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club".
