Solskjaer makes dream start as United thrash Cardiff

Dwight Yorke has questioned whether Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the personality to handle high-profile players.

Manchester United great Peter Schmeichel is considering putting himself forward for the proposed director of football role at the Premier League club.

He said: "I know you're waiting for something about Jose, or about the result today".

Mourinho's big-name players such as Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Eric Bailly struggled to produce consistent performances under the former Real Madrid boss.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the top four is not out of reach after beginning his reign with a 5-1 win over Cardiff City. Not everything worked well but things went well, we won trophies.

"It's very disappointing, but if you'd have told me at the beginning of the season we wouldn't be in the bottom three at Christmas I would have snapped your hand off".

"He's been well received, he's well liked, but I really think he'd be the least person I think of out of all of us to become a manager", Yorke added.

United's first game without Mourinho couldn't have gone any better, as the Red Devils scored five goals in a league game for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's last game in charge against West Brom in 2013.

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.

"We can not play like this with five goals and in the next game lose".

"Because of the occasion, they do want to make a run or two more than normal, but when you have players like Martial and Rashford up top, they do run a lot".

'I want to see Pogba being a United player as good as everything else he does in life. The dressing room, the way they approached this game, because it's been a hard week for everyone and to get the focus and perform as well as they did impressed [me].
