Solskjaer smile boosting United already says Young

Solskjaer smile boosting United already says Young

Juan Mata says now is a time for optimism at Manchester United, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having taken over from Jose Mourinho.

The Newcastle United hero named his best XI from the weekend's league games on Monday morning, and he failed to mention any United players despite their emphatic victory at Cardiff City.

"Then we carried on from there. As professional players we have to get on with the job in hand, and that is what we did here". "For us as players, we enjoyed it today". With Mourinho gone, Woodward can press on with the task of recruiting a world-class manager to rebuild the team at the same time as identifying and hiring the technical director that, until recently, he and the Glazers were so insistent was not required by United. "I've sat next to him in the dressing room for 11 years and you know Gary".

"It's not going to happen in every game that you create chances like we did on Saturday".

"The main focus is us and the next four or five games are very winnable".

Mourinho's two-and-a-half-year tenure came to an end with United sixth and 19 points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool.

United are in this season's Champions League and face Paris St-Germain in the last 16.

"People might be quick to forget what Jose did for United - the three trophies he won - he did a lot", said Shaw, referring to the fact that Mourinho won the Community Shield, Europa League and FA Cup in his first season, 2016-17. "Not everything worked well but things went well, we won trophies", Pogba said.

"It doesn't matter what team you're coaching, they all want to have a picture of how you want to play, they're all quality players, so it will be easier to get players expressing themselves".
