"And the club have got the recruitment and scouting, so I'm sure they've got their targets, but I've not sat down and talked about that".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has promised World Cup victor Paul Pogba and the rest of his team-mates they will get a chance to prove their worth to Manchester United once again as he starts afresh at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer will be at the helm at Old Trafford until the end of the season, when the club will appoint a full-time successor. He wants his current set of players to feel the same comfort. "Don't write Mourinho off yet, I hope the guy comes back and does well". It's a unusual, odd feeling but then suddenly it became part of you and it was home.

Solskjaer was then asked about his style of management and how he evolved over the years.

"I will have an input but the job is to get to know the players, observe them I've seen more or less every game from Norway but to get to know the players, what do I think I can improve them on".

"People say Mourinho's been falling out with players; you would fall out with players when they turn up overweight or they aren't training properly and aren't producing". Lots of my management evolves around what I learnt from him. Reminding Manchester United fans what it is like to enjoy their football again, love their club team again so that it is the first thing they think of when they wake up and the last when they go to bed.

"I told you so!"

"I've had 300-400 games as a first-team manager".

United built a reputation as comeback kings under Ferguson, peaking with Solskjaer's last-gasp goal to seal Champions League glory against Bayern Munich.

"That [the 1999 Champions League final] was the best night of my life".

"No longer is there that sense of Manchester United being a barren land where you would not dream of sending your best player there". In Germany and most other leagues they stop the leagues. You have family, it's tradition, it's history, giving youth a chance, attacking football and winning.

Solskjaer's first game will be against Cardiff on Saturday before United head into a hectic Christmas period but the new boss has no excuses heading into his first game.

"But we didn't play him as a central midfielder, somebody who was controlling the game, we played him higher up the pitch as a number ten, he could go left, he could go right".
