MANCHESTER UNITED players were singing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s name in the dressing room after their incredible Champions League win over PSG last night.
Marcus Rashford’s last minute penalty ensured Manchester United recorded a 3-1 win over the French giants, overturning their 2-0 deficit from the first leg to progress via away goals.
Solskjaer celebrated widely with his coaching staff at full-time before showing his class by shaking hands with the PSG players and then congratulating his own.
The Norwegian has brought smiles back to the faces of those playing on the pitch and fans watching from the stands and it’s clear his impressive work is rubbing off on his talented stars.
Solskjaer is now the favourite to get the job full time in the summer and in an interview with Gary Neville after the game, the former right-back revealed all on United’s dressing room celebrations.
“I don’t know, they get results. We have a good relationship I have to say”

“Three very quick questions, how long would you like on your contract? What would your salary like to be? And where would you like the statue?” said Neville.
The interim boss laughed and replied: “Fantastic night, eh? I’m just going to do my best until the summer, see what the club decides.
Neville then added: “They’ve only got one decision to make haven’t they?”
The 45-year-old was again coy with his reply.
“I hear you keep saying that, so uh… tonight we have to remember. It’s the spirit of Man United,” Solskjaer said.
“Great to see the boss [Sir Alex Ferguson] in there after the game for the first time. The lads were just absolutely magnificent.”
Neville continued: “The thing is about a group of players, I heard them actually through the dressing room door singing your name, they absolutely love you, don’t they?”
Solskjaer replied: “I don’t know, they get results. We have a good relationship I have to say.
“It’s been fantastic coaching them with Kieran [McKenna], Michael [Carrick], Demps [Mark Dempsey], Mick [Mike Phelan] and Emilio [Alvarez]. We’re a great team together.
“The players, I think they enjoy us. I just want them to improve and have nights like this. We’ve been part of it ourselves haven’t we.”
Next up for United is a trip to Arsenal on Sunday when they return to Premier League action.
