Solskjaer enthusiastic of Old Trafford return after Mourinho’s exit
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can’t wait to lead Manchester United out at Old Trafford for the first time on Wednesday against relegation-threatened Huddersfield.
Having been parachuted in as caretaker manager for the rest of the season, the former United strike got the post-Jose Mourinho era off to a dream start.
United ran amok at Solskjaer’s former club Cardiff on Saturday, scoring five goals in a Premier League game for the first time since Alex Ferguson retired in May 2013 as they left the Welsh capital buoyed by a 5-1 win.
“Of course, you try to keep your emotion in check because I’m there to do a job, I’ve got to be focused,” Solskjaer said. “It’s not easy, I don’t think it will be easy, but I’m looking forward to it and I think the boys are looking forward to playing at Old Trafford.
“That’s the key, we should be looking forward to playing there.”
Solskjaer is looking to become just the fifth manager in United’s history to start with back-to-back league wins.
Sixth-placed United have managed to win just five of 12 matches at Old Trafford in all competitions so far in this disappointing campaign, with the pressure appearing to be too much for players at times.
