Watch: Solskjaer tries to guess Man Utd players from childhood photos


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been given the challenge of identifying some of his players from pictures of them as children.

He has been in the Old Trafford hot seat for the last 16 months and United are starting to show signs of progress on the pitch.

The Norwegian clearly has a strong bond with his squad and was eventually able to recognise all seven players from their childhood photos.

Solskjaer identified Anthony Martial, David de Gea and Marcus Rashford straightaway but initially struggled to recognise a baby-faced Juan Mata.

UEFA then gave Solskajer a trip down memory lane by showing the ‘baby faced assassin’ a picture of himself when he was a teenager.
