Some of the often unfair criticism aimed at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at times is directed at his laid back approach in the stands.
Rather that standing in the dugout ranting and raving, Solskjaer prefers to take a seat and watch the game unfold, with a television monitor beside him.
Most managers attempt to supress their emotions, so that they don’t get too carried away by the highs and lows of matches and the season as a whole, enabling them to make more rational decisions.
Solskjaer could not contain his emotions and his sheer delight as United ran riot against Leeds.
The manager spoke prior to the game about how his players would be ready for this fixture, the renewal of a historic rivalry after a 16 year league absence.
He knew what this fixture meant, and having played in it several times himself, it clearly mattered a lot to him personally.
The only thing missing was him running onto the pitch and sliding on his knees, ’99 style.
It’s rare Solskjaer lets his emotions get the better of him. Considering how explosive United’s start to the game was, you can’t blame him.
This was the home performance United needed, and the team’s biggest league win since the 8-2 win over Arsenal under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Sir Alex was at Old Trafford watching on and Solskjaer seemed to be looking for his seal of approval at the final whistle.
