Ashley Young insists Man United must build on Cardiff City win

"When you've got Martial and Jesse Lingard down either side, Rashford up top with Paul supporting them, it's exhilarating to watch and as long as we keep that standard up we'll keep up picking points".

Dwight Yorke has questioned whether Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the personality to handle high-profile players. We can not play like this and score five goals and then lose [the next match].

After United thumped Cardiff City 5-1 in their first game under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Saturday, Pogba conceded not all had been well under Mourinho, but nevertheless thanked him for his work. And I know what you want to ask...

"The performance of the team was great and we are happy that the first game of the manager starts like this", he added.

In addition, at least one player regularly selected by Mourinho called Woodward in the aftermath of United's 3-1 defeat at Liverpool last Sunday 'and told him Jose should leave'.

United are eight points adrift of the Champions League places but Solskjaer has not ruled out a charge up the table in the second half of the season.

"They are very good players, talented players, they've approached the game properly and worked hard".

Instead, United responded resoundingly with a fantastic team goal as a quick interchange of passes between Pogba and Lingard freed Martial to score his ninth goal of the season. I'm sure all the players do.

United's swift appointment of terrace hero and UEFA Champions League victor Solskjaer meant the players had no excuses for a jaded performance away at Cardiff City on Saturday.

Football fans are by their nature a fairly gloomy bunch; the curse of the supporter is to spend much of one's life watching a team who fails to win trophies.

"We want to go back to the top of the league", he said.

"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.
