“I’ve only met him once myself. He was a very nice man to speak to and we had a nice chat,” said Solskjaer, according to ESPN.

“He’s probably a very good man manager, but you’ve got to ask someone else. From the outside, he looks like that anyway.”

“He’s got good players, it’s the same with me. It’s easier to play an attacking way and your way when you’ve got good players, and he’s got lots of good players.”
