Ole Gunnar Solskjaer guesses Man United players from their baby photos in brilliant video

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s time as Manchester United boss has been turbulent to say the least.

The Norwegian joined his former club at a difficult time in December 2018, taking over from Jose Mourinho.

He immediately made an impact, with United almost untouchable for the first four months of his reign.

Solskjaer was given the full-time role shortly after United famously defeated Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, but it’s been tough going since then.

Now, United currently sit fifth in the Premier League and are targeting a return to the Champions League.

They have been in good form of late, having gone unbeaten in their last 11 games.

The Red Devils will have a good chance of qualifying for the Champions League, from either the Premier League or the Europa League, should the competitions start again.

Solskjaer has now been at the club for 16 months. But how well does he know his players?
