Manchester United interim boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has pushed for his players to ‘express themselves’ when they take on Cardiff at the weekend.

Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho after Portuguese failed to settle his Manchester United team.

Speaking ahead of the Cardiff game, the new manager said: “We’ve got a great set-up, with all the analysts. When I came in this morning they were watching Cardiff. Of course I’ve watched the Premier League, I’ve seen all the teams so I’ve got a little bit of a view on them.

“But it’s not about the opposition it’s about us, it’s about Man Utd, it’s about our players knowing what they can do, seeing them express themselves.

“So my main focus will be on us, how we want the team play and then will give a few details on the opposition.”

Solskjaer was an extremely popular player during his Manchester United days and he said the job is something of an emotional one for him as it brings back such good memories.

“It feels like coming home. It’s been a few whirlwind days, very hectic, but great to see everyone again,

“It’s six months and I’m going to enjoy the ride. I’m back home and it’s about seeing the players, seeing the staff, and of course just being myself.

“I know the club is now running a process to find the next manager so I’m going to just be myself in the meantime with Mick [Phelan] of course, and Kieran [McKenna] and Michael [Carrick] and the rest of the staff.

“We will get the players enjoying their football and looking forward to seeing the supporters again.”
