Man United were a ‘laughing stock’ under Mourinho - Jones

Man United were a ‘laughing stock’ under Mourinho - Jones”

In United's last European home game against Young Boys, the Portuguese coach did not hide his disgust when he missed an early chance.

Speaking after an Edinson Cavani penalty earned Thomas Tuchel's men a narrow 1-0 win over Bordeaux on Saturday, Buffon said: 'I appreciated the victory but I did not like the match.

While Tuesday night's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain is now the focus of United's attention, the sight of Woodward and Glazer talking Solskjaer's agent Jim Solbakken will fuel rumours that the Norwegian is edging closer to being appointed as the club's next permanent manager.

"He rarely spoke in the dressing room", he added. Because, going into every game thinking they can win it has not been the most conspicuous of aims since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. Who I meet and when I meet people is not really up for me to tell.

It had been suggested that Solskjaer would need to overcome PSG in the Champions League to prove his credentials, but United's board have seen enough already - though the decision may still not be announced until the end of the season.

"I've always looked further ahead", he continued. "It's something I'm looking forward to".

'I believe we have to get better in everything because we will play against a team and in a stadium which will oblige us to be more solid and have a different attitude'.

"We started very well, we created two great chances to score a goal, but suddenly Pogba scored the first goal, and I think, "Okay, stay calm, and we can continue to play and find a solution", he said.

Eleven games since he took over from Jose Mourinho has resulted in ten wins and one draw but the toughest tests are still to come.

Solskjaer outlined his first task as putting smiles back on the players' faces but the feel-good factor has galvanised the fans just as much as his squad.

As soon as Pogba's opening goal - his 10th PL strike of the season - hit the net in the 14th minute of the game, all Manchester United players were seen celebrating immediately, except star striker Romelu Lukaku. "I've been in that situation a few times myself and it's about who grabs it".
