Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Jose Mourinho Man Utd

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that Jose Mourinho moaned about a change the Portuguese boss made to Old Trafford during his first proper chat with the former Man Utd manager.

Solskjaer took over from Mourinho when the former Real Madrid boss was sacked by Man Utd in December 2018  – with the Norwegian overseeing a mixed bag of results since his appointment.

Before the Premier League shutdown, Solskjaer had led the Red Devils on an 11-match unbeaten run with Man Utd currently sitting fifth in the Premier League table.

Man Utd played Tottenham on December 4 of last year with Solskjaer’s side coming out on top in a 2-1 win at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer spoke to Mourinho properly for the first time after that match, he told United We Stand: “We had a chat before the game.

“I’d not really met him before, only briefly when he was at Chelsea and they played Cardiff. We had a nice chat. He was complaining about the away dressing room, the one that he’d changed!

“There was a positive atmosphere between us – it was good to have him back.”

There have been many people questioning Solskjaer’s appointment but the Norwegian maintains he is the right man for the job: “I’m a Red through and through. United matters to me.

“I’m honest, I’m loyal. I’m a club man. I plan for the long term and I want the best for the club long-term. I’d like to think they thought I had the personality to manage Manchester United.”
