Solskjaer hails 'phenomenal' Man Utd recruitment structure: But I'll have my say

Jermain Defoe centre with'England manager Gareth Southgate and Harry Kane at Hampden

"When you have players, like we have, with pace - Paul [Pogba], Anthony [Martial], Alexis [Sanchez], Romelu [Lukaku], [Marcus] Rashford - that's how we played with Andy [Cole] and Yorkie [Dwight Yorke] with Giggsy [Ryan Giggs] and Becks [David Beckham] down the sides". Many of them have played four games on the bounce and are feeling the Christmas period so there might be a couple of changes, or maybe a few more, but we're ready for Reading.

"When they're here, they're good enough to play for Man United and you trust them, so I'm looking forward to tomorrow". "The next game is coming quickly though, and hopefully we can go through in the cup, and then we have Chelsea". "We never hit the heights that we can do but I felt we were in control, kept plugging away", he told Sky Sports.

Solskjaer is focusing on FA Cup progress against Reading, who are second from bottom of the Championship.

"I don't know what input he had but when I got the call, of course, I texted the boss".

"To get to summer and people are talking about the way Manchester United are playing", said Solskjaer when asked about his ambitions for his spell in charge.

Solskjaer said: "They've created some great chances today and some fantastic attacking football at times and it's pleasing".

But as a temporary boss, for now, Solskjaer also stressed that the most important part of his job is not planning for the future with transfers, rather working with the existing squad for results.

"We knew that we could have taken more points than we have this season, but we have to believe we can beat the top teams".

"So, it's up to you [the media] to probably rate me if I'm up to the level, but I'm definitely enjoying my time back home".

The whole mood of the club has lifted since Solskjaer's arrival and Sanchez is no different, as he has been working hard in training and apparently begged the new manager to include him in the squad that beat Bournemouth 4-1 on Sunday.

During a 13-year career at United, he made nearly 400 appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson, winning five Premier League titles, a Champions League, three League Cups and an FA Cup. "I respect a lot what the last manager did for us".

Liverpool manager Adam Lallana is set to dump the Merseyside club this month after failing to get much game-time this season. "Molde fits me very well; Man United fits me very well because it's in me".

"I think Nemanja [Matic] and me, or the other players, we have to help him to make him feel free and that's what we're doing".
