Solskjaer vows to get Manchester United players ‘enjoying football’ again

Manchester United’s new caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to get his players enjoying their football again after a difficult start to the season under the recently sacked Jose Mourinho.

Former striker Solskjaer is a bonafide Manchester United legend having won six Premier League titles during his 11 seasons with the club, as well as famously scoring a last minute winner in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

The 45-year-old Norwegian has taken over the reigns at Old Trafford until the end of the season, while the club conduct a thorough search for a new long-term manager.

Speaking for the first time since his appointment Solskjaer has revealed that he is planning on enjoying his time in the hot seat at the Theatre of Dreams.

“First of all, it feels like I’m coming home,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

“It’s been a whirlwind few days, of course, but it’s just great to see everyone again. It’s for six months and I’m going to enjoy the ride.”

“I’m going to enjoy the ride. It’s six months. I’m back home. I’m going to be myself.

“The club is running a process to find the next manager so I’m going to be myself in the meantime with Mick, Kieran and Michael.

“We’ll get the players enjoying their football again.”

Solskjaer takes over the reigns at Old Trafford with United in sixth place in the table, 11 points off the top four, with his first game coming away against his former club Cardiff City this Saturday evening.
