So, Jose Mourinho has gone.

The Portuguese boss was sacked by Manchester United on Tuesday morning after their wretched start to the 2018/19 season.

United find themselves 19 points behind Liverpool after they were soundly beaten 3-1 by their arch-rivals on Sunday.

With Mourinho gone, where do the Red Devils turn now?

Well, former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is being considered as caretaker manager until the end of the season.

The Norweigen scored 126 goals during his 366 appearances for the club, winning six Premier League titles and two FA Cups.

He also scored the dramatic winner during the 1999 Champions League final triumph over Bayern Munich.

But what’s he like as a manager?

Well, he was sacked by Cardiff after failing to save them from relegation and is now in his second spell in charge of Molde - where he’s been since 2015.

And a short clip of him in a training session at Molde has emerged after being linked with the United job.

During the video, Solskjaer can be heard telling several of his players to “shoot” instead of passing the ball.


“Does anyone want to shoot?” he asks.

“You’re 18 yards away from goal and you keep f***ing passing it. Shoot! You won’t ever score a goal if you don’t shoot.”

He then lectures three players individually for passing instead of having a shot.


Take a look:


And after watching the clip, it’s fair to say United fans are pretty excited at the prospect of Solskjaer working with the current squad.

Upon sacking Mourinho, the club confirmed that they're now in the process of appointing a caretaker boss.

"A caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the season while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager," it read.

"The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future."
