Watch: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer celebrates first Manchester United win


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed himself in his first game as Manchester United manager.

United brushed aside Solskjaer’s former club Cardiff City 5-1, taking an early lead through a Marcus Rashford freekick after just three minutes. The Norwegian’s dream start continued as Ander Herrera added a second with a long-range effort.

Solskjaer celebrated the goal emphatically, fist-pumping on the sideline before hugging his new coaching staff. It all seems a world away from life under Jose Mourinho.

The boss would also have approved of Rashford and Herrera’s goal celebrations on the pitch. Both whipped out the knee slide in homage to Solskjaer’s famous winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League Final in Barcelona.
