United appointed former striker Solskjaer as interim boss for the rest of the campaign after they sacked Jose Mourinho on Tuesday with the team sixth in the standings, following their worst start to a season in 28 years.

It looks like Solskjaer has already stuck to his word as the 45-year-old has included youngsters Garner and Gomes in the travelling squad that flew out of Manchester airport this afternoon ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Cardiff. "That's my job. The club has the recruitment and scouting, i'm sure they have their targets".

Of course, you can't really judge the impact of a new boss after two games, and the true test will be to see what has stuck in a couple of months time.

What does this tell us about Solskjaer's first game as Manchester United's caretaker manager?

"Work together and then let's see how many points we can gather". Respect. I can't wait to help the team! Our main focus is us, the opposition comes later.

Fans and commentators have had mixed reactions to Mourinho's decision in recent matches to keep record signing Paul Pogba out of the starting line-up.

"You play with courage, go out there and express your skills".

"When you are at Manchester there are a set of demands - standards expected".

"We'll get the players enjoying football and I'm looking forward to seeing the supporters again". The club is running a process to find the next manager so I'm going to be myself in the meantime with [assistants] Mick [Phelan], Kieran [McKenna] and Michael [Carrick].

Scholes was also critical of United's players and said he believed they had let Mourinho down with their performances this season.

Solskjaer, on loan from Norway's Molde, conceded that he has not looked beyond the end of the current campaign with the club where he spent almost 15 years as a player and coach.

The new manager is certain to be afforded a hero's welcome when he walks out at Old Trafford on Boxing Day ahead of the clash with Huddersfield, although he knows that goodwill may be short-lived if he can not turn things around on the pitch.

But he made it clear on Friday that he would love to be considered for the Man Utd job.

That is the opinion of Stoke star and former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher.

"They have already grown sick of Sanchez's displays since he joined nearly 12 months ago from Arsenal".
