Sir Alex Ferguson will be a big help, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Rooney reveals the toxicity under Mourinho: Even the kitchen ladies weren't enjoying it

The club legend was appointed as caretaker manager until the end of the season after Jose Mourinho was sacked last week.

Manchester United are 19 points behind league leaders Liverpool and 11 points behind Chelsea, who now occupy the final Champions League qualification place.

United will have another opportunity to boost morale as they are at home to Huddersfield Town in their next Premier League match on Boxing Day.

"I've spoken to Sir Alex [Ferguson] and hopefully I'll go to his or he'll come to me and we'll have a cup of tea".

Paul Merson has branded United's players "A JOKE" after they turned on the style to smash Cardiff 5-1 following Jose Mourinho's sacking.

United will have competition for the 26-year-old as Tottenham are also keeping tabs on the Cherries star and the report adds that Eddie Howe does not want to lose King.

"Just to be positive".

Given the performance that the attacking trio of Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial put on show against Cardiff, it is highly improbable that Solskjaer would be looking to break that partnership on Wednesday.

"If you lose the ball, win it back, and play the United way - attacking football, entertaining football". That's tradition, that's history, that's how we want to play.

Rarely has enjoyment ever been top of Mourinho's list of priorities, even in his most successful spells with Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan.

"My concern over the last three to four years is who has been signing the players".

"The change at Man United is not down to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer", Merson told Sky Sports.

"Doesn't matter which team you play".

The former Manchester United striker started with a bang as his side won 5-1 against Cardiff City on Saturday.

"You can never set the bar too high". I would stop this run against any opponent, I don't care which one. The next one where we have a chance is United, it looks like not the easiest one but like always in life and football, every day gives you a chance.

The best Christmas present for many United fans may be the gift of being able to look forward to games with a sense of anticipation again.
