Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sets Paul Pogba challenge after Huddersfield double

Mourinho’s sacking not what Huddersfield wanted before Boxing Day match – Wagner

Manchester United put in their best display in a long long time during Solskjaer's first game in charge, a 5-1 away win against Cardiff City, and England global Shaw reckons if his side can maintain that type of form they have a great chance of qualifying for next seasons Champions League.

The Norwegian took charge of his first game on Saturday, leading his former side to a 5-1 win.

"You earn it by your performances, by your training, how you feel".

Solskjær has managed at Old Trafford before, but only twice: "I was sat next to René Meulensteen in a reserve team game once as a coach, and I was there with Cardiff [in 2014, when United won 2-0]".

And this was exactly what they did vs Cardiff. "You know me in social situations - shameless and straight to the point - so I stuck out my hand and I said, "Ole, I'm delighted to meet you". "If it's food poisoning or something".

"There is a phrase in football about players "not playing for the manager", which I have seen happen a thousand times", the 77-year-old wrote. "But of course it will be special".

"I'm no different to any other manager when you lead that team out onto the pitch".

"You can never set the bar too high because they set the standards". This is how I remember the fans from my previous time at the club: home and away, the players are always able to count on your backing.

"Today, it's not like they were outperforming themselves".

"They're the best fans in the world", he said. 'We all have a lot of work to do in order to get this club back towards where it should be.

Now, Solskjaer has a chance to do the same again but in front of the Old Trafford faithful when United host Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Boxing Day. "That's how we want to play so Cardiff was a good reflection of what we want".

'I am under no illusions as to the scale of the job ahead, ' he added.
