Solskjaer Back 'Home' at Manchester United, Says He Wants Players to 'Enjoy Football' Again
Solskjaer, 45, made more than 360 appearances in 11 years for United and scored a dramatic Champions League winner in 1999 to seal a historic treble.

New Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says it is "like coming home" as he starts his temporary tenure as the Red Devils' boss, he told the club's MUTV channel on Thursday.

Solskjaer, 45, made more than 360 appearances in 11 years for United and scored a dramatic Champions League winner in 1999 to seal a historic treble.

"It feels like coming home. It's been a few whirlwind days, very hectic," he said in his first interview since taking over from Jose Mourinho.

United called time on Mourinho's two-and-a-half years at the club on Tuesday, with the club languishing sixth in the Premier League, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool.

Solksjaer added, "We will get the players enjoying football and looking forward to seeing the supporters again. We have to get used to winning again and challenging for trophies. Whatever has happened has happened and everyone starts with a clean slate.

"We're in the results business, we want to win games. We (the staff) just want to see the players play the football that they can do. I've seen the last few performances, but now it's just about picking a team. There will be a lot of players used because of the busy period."

Solskjaer will be at the helm at Old Trafford until the end of the season, when the club will appoint a full-time successor.

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino is the current front-runner.

"It's six months, I'm going to enjoy the ride. It's about being myself. The club's running a process to find the next manager so I'm just going to be myself in the meantime," he added.

He will take charge of his first match on Saturday against Cardiff, where he spent an unhappy spell as manager in 2014.
