According to the report, one of the first things Solskjaer did upon his return to Man Utd was present members of staff with chocolate bars as he used to do when he was a player, in recognition of the work that goes on behind the scenes.

It’s clear the 45-year-old’s simple values of respect go a long way, with the report going on to explain a number of other gestures that have made him such an important presence inside United.

It may now be that Solskjaer will land himself the MUFC job permanently, with speculation growing that this is on the cards.
