Man Utd caretaker boss will 'get players enjoying football' again

Jose Mourinho alongside Alexis Sanchez

Solskjaer became a fans' favourite after spending 11 seasons as a player at United and the former Norway global has been tasked with bringing a feel-good factor back to Old Trafford after taking the reins as an interim manager until the end of the season.

One of Mourinho's persistent complaints this season was his lack of support in the transfer market, but Solskjaer has revealed he will contribute to recruitment.

"We will get the players enjoying football and looking forward to seeing the supporters again", he said.

I've seen the last few games.

The Sun are reporting that Alexis Sanchez sent a message in the United players" WhatsApp group following the demise of Mourinho with it clearly saying - "I told you so! "I think first thing is the first game - I have to think about getting my principles into the boys, get the players to understand how I want them to play and let's take the results later on".

Both paid with their jobs after failing to seal Champions League qualification, but this time United have acted early to kick-start their faltering campaign just three years and a day after Mourinho got sacked by Chelsea for the second time.

A club statement read: "Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect".

Solskjaer begins his United reign away to Cardiff - whom he coached in 2014 - on Saturday at the end of a hectic week at the Old Trafford club.

"I think it's the best job Ole will have in his life, because he can't lose", Warnock said.

"When I came back with Cardiff in 2014, it was a odd, unusual feeling, one of the most surreal feelings I have had being on the other side, and I can't wait for it".

Solskjaer then went on to reminisce his debut appearance at Old Trafford and how the place quickly became home for him.

With the Portuguese gone, United may make their move for the Spurs boss, who has taken his club to consecutive finishes in the top three but has yet to bring a trophy to North London. "I really hope that I can be a part of that tradition and there are some great youngsters coming through". I am one of them. You look at his performance levels and the style of play, the way in which he carries himself at all times. "Good players are easier to coach than bad players".

But his first job in charge of a senior team came with his former club Molde back in Norway.

"The amount of games coming up is no problem because we've got an unbelievable squad, we've got 23-24 players", Solskjaer said.
