Paul Pogba: Manchester United midfielder is happy now - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Mourinho’s sacking not what Huddersfield wanted before Boxing Day match – Wagner

Goals in each half from Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba sealed a happy return to Old Trafford for Solskjaer, who received a rapturous reception before kick-off.

Gary Lineker drew attention to Paul Pogba's performance on Twitter after Manchester United eased to a 3-1 win over Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.

Manchester United continue their upwards trajectory after the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

But with the Norwegian now in charge, United fans might get what they want. "The Paul I've known since he was in the reserves and youth team with me".

"To be a successful football club, you need everything to be right, to be happy".

"So I shook hands with him and said, 'Listen I thought you were a fantastic player, brilliant player, and even though I'm a Liverpool fan I just wanted to shake your hand'".

"Of course it's a responsibility but it's an honour and a privilege".

"If they can do that then they will get the opportunity to play for the club next season". He's a Man United boy through and through.

USA ‘to pull 7,000 troops’ from Afghanistan
It is still to be seen how angry the U.S.'s European allies and other stakeholders are going to be with this decision. His decision was made public a mere few hours after he abruptly announced the US was withdrawing troops from Syria .

Solskjær's predecessors have frequently been unhappy with pundits such as Gary Neville picking apart United's performances and offering strident opinions on their play.

Enjoying a bright start to life back at United, Solskjaer's side will now look toward a game at home to Bournemouth on Sunday.

"You don't change anything in one week but the mindset", said Solskjaer.

Now speaking before their game vs Huddersfield, Solksjaer has revealed how he intends to use his attacking players.

Solskjaer, who won six Premier League titles under Ferguson, said it was critical his players respected the club's traditions by sticking to an attacking style of play.

But we spoke in a team meeting before the Cardiff game about when we get one goal, we want to get two.

"But it's humbling and made me really proud". In the first half we came under tremendous pressure but they play with freedom and they still have world-class players.

On Wednesday, the new Man United head coach commented: "I'm looking forward to it and I think the boys are looking forward to playing at Old Trafford". We have played against a world-class side, we have seen why Paul (Pogba) is a World Cup victor, two world-class strikes, and this is why we lost this game.
