Solskjaer explains what Wayne Rooney told him after getting Manchester United job

Not everything worked well but things went well, we won trophies.

"When you've got Martial and Jesse Lingard down either side, Rashford up top with Paul supporting them, it's exhilarating to watch and as long as we keep that standard up we'll keep up picking points". We can not play like this and score five goals and then lose [the next match].

Pogba, however, praised Mourinho after United won 5-1 at Cardiff on Saturday evening, their first game under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. That's the past, I want to thank him for that.

A particularly contentious element of Mourinho's tenure concerned his relationships with some players, and he was reported to be on poor terms with Pogba by the time United dismissed him.

It was put to Solskjaer that this is the first league game in 2018-19 in which United had outrun their opponents - they covered 104 kilometres compared to Cardiff's 99 - and the former Norway star stressed that such work rate is a minimum requirement.

"Obviously, we're really happy about the result".

Solskjaer has been fortunate with his early fixture list and has an opportunity to get some confidence back into this side before they return to Champions League action against Paris Saint Germain in the new year.

Prosecutors charge 2 involved in Flynn's Turkish lobbying
As part of the alleged scheme, Flynn Intel "was to kick back 20 percent of the payments to Alptekin's company in the Netherlands". Flynn has been cooperating with prosecutors after he pleaded guilty to unrelated charges and is due to be sentenced this week.

Pogba, or any other player, can not be bigger than the club.

Instead, United responded resoundingly with a fantastic team goal as a quick interchange of passes between Pogba and Lingard freed Martial to score his ninth goal of the season.

"I thought we started well, even at 2-1 down I thought we had a chance but it's not a penalty is it, dear me". We played well. The performance of the team was great. I'm sure all the players do.

"Winning trophies makes you improve as a person as well and that's it".

"I would like to see [the job go to] someone who has played there, and can bring some of that Sir Alex [Ferguson] mentality back in the whole of the football club".

"I don't think he has stopped smiling", Young added.
