Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hails "unbelievable quality" of players after convincing win

"They are such a great bunch of players, and the quality is just unbelievable".

Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had the ideal start to life in charge as his side netted twice in his first 30 minutes as the Red Devils' boss.

Keane added: "The players got away with murder".

It was the first time United had scored five since Alex Ferguson's last game in charge in May 2013.

Pogba publicly fell out with Jose Mourinho before the Portuguese was relieved of his duties and was linked with a mega money transfer to Barcelona.

Solskjaer has been fortunate with his early fixture list and has an opportunity to get some confidence back into this side before they return to Champions League action against Paris Saint Germain in the new year.

Manchester United player Paul Pogba celebrates after the 5th goal during the Premier League match at Cardiff City Stadium on December 22, 2018 in Cardiff, United Kingdom. I'm sure all the players do.

'I want to see Pogba being a United player as good as everything else he does in life.

"I think he can't believe his luck that he's got this wonderful opportunity to come back to the club, I think he'd be the first to admit that", Yorke told beIN Sports. Today they were brilliant from the warm-ups to when we left the pitch. "Ole's given them that freedom".

Solskjaer, who has made a temporary switch from Norwegian club Molde, has been put in charge until the end of the season when it is expected United will appoint a more experienced manager.

Pogba was at the heart of United's best work and having been fouled for the free-kick leading to Marcus Rashford's opener, his intelligent pass picked out Ander Herrera, whose shot flicked off Greg Cunningham to loop over the helpless Neil Etheridge to make it 2-0 inside half an hour.

"Today they've approached the game properly, they've worked hard", said Solskjaer.

"It doesn't matter what team you play, you should run more than them and then your skills will give you a chance of winning again".
