Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's five best tweets

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is flying high as Manchester United interim boss after 10 games. Nine wins and one draw has provided a dream start.
One curious and perhaps wise thing Solskjaer has declined to do since taking over is to use his Twitter account
The United boss was a rare user of the platform, sending only 60 tweets since joining in 2015.
The Norwegian has 70,000 followers and a look back at his messages makes for fascinating reading, with his passion for United shining through.
Here is a look at his five best messages…

Love for Rashford

Solskjaer took a picture of Marcus Rashford celebrating scoring at Old Trafford, complete with his shirt hoisted on his television.
The date? March 10. The game? United’s 2-1 win over Liverpool in which Rashford scored twice.
It’s little wonder Rashford has played such a key role under Solskjaer.

Message to Jose

Of course, the one time Solskjaer mentioned Jose Mourinho it was about Paul Pogba. You couldn’t script it.
This came in Pogba’s first season after he struck a late winner at home to Middlesbrough.
Everything seemed rosy for Jose then.

Two years on and Mourinho’s lack of faith in Pogba led to his downfall.

As he is showing now, Solskjaer always believed.

The nice man of football

Solskjaer is already the Premier League’s most likeable boss.
He showed this with a classy message after Leicester City’s title win, which was wrapped up after Eden Hazard ended Tottenham’s challenge in 2016.
He made sure to congratulate ex-United academy talents Danny Simpson and Danny Drinkwater.

Secrets to his success

Solskjaer’s spell in charge at Cardiff City did not exactly work out.
He returned to manage Molde, and did a bit of fine tuning by playing a computer management simulator.

Perhaps this is the secret of his success at United.
And credit to this one fan who in 2016 replied to the message and forecasted Solskjaer’s successful Old Trafford return…


Loves a win over Liverpool

Ole knows what it means to be United, and that means getting one over on Liverpool whenever possible.
This tweet was his way of showing that, evoking two better memories than our last trip to Anfield.
Solskjaer gets his first crack at Jurgen Klopp’s side later this month at Old Trafford.
