And Chadwick has predicted a “really exciting future” ahead for United with Solskjaer at the helm.

Chadwick told the Burnley Express: “It’s nice to see him now reaping the rewards after having a tough start at United. He’s laying the foundations for what will hopefully be a really exciting future for him and the club.

“The game has changed slightly over the past 20-odd years, it’s about managing individuals and your relationships with those individuals.

“I think Ole is fantastic at that and he’s the sort of person that can get the best out of people.

“Hopefully he can keep going and build a team that can mount a serious challenge for the next few seasons.”

Chadwick added: “It was always going to be a strange season and there were always going to be strange results throughout the season.

“United got battered off Spurs and then hours later Liverpool were conceding seven against Aston Villa.

“If there was ever a time for United to win the title then this is the season to do it because their rivals are so inconsistent.

“They’re right in the mix now without really playing their best football, which is always a good sign.”
