Big talking points ahead of Cardiff vs Manchester United

  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer returns to Cardiff

The Norwegian manager returns to the club where he had his first-ever managerial stint in the English Premier League. The 45-year-old coach was named as interim boss of Manchester United following Jose Mourinho's departure earlier in the week.

While his spell at Cardiff in the 2014/2015 season is one he would want to forget, a daunting task lies ahead with Manchester United fans anticipating a change in the fortune  of their club in the shortest possible time.

What are the managers saying ahead of Cardiff City vs Manchester United?

  • Neil Warnock on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's appointment:

"I think it's the best job he will have in his life, Ole, because he can't lose! "He'll hold the fort until the end of the season and if he does well, he'll get a couple of years. "It's a great club and we're all expecting [Paul] Pogba, [Anthony] Martial or [Jesse] Lingard to be a man of the match. Ole is a nice lad from what I've heard.

  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer:

"My job is to help the players, make them grasp the opportunity now. "I had the best manager [Sir Alex Ferguson] as a player and coach to learn how to deal with people and how he dealt with people.

"It's about communication... when you're at Man United, there are a set of demands and one of them is to be a team player and I don't think anyone has been on the bench more than me! "

So that's always my comeback to players: 'You never know, you might come on and make an impact - that's your chance, grab your opportunity when you get it."
