Ole Gunnar Solskjær Is Bringing Back Sir Alex Ferguson's 'Famous' Method At Manchester United

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær has learned a lot from his time with Sir Alex Ferguson.

The 45-year-old Norwegian invited the former United boss to the Carrington training complex ahead of the Bournemouth match.

In fact, he revealed that he had been in touch with the famed Scotsman since he was appointed as manager.

“I have been in touch with the gaffer quite a bit,” he said. “Well, he signed me 22 years ago, so he is the big part of course.

“I don’t know what input he had but when I got the call, of course, I texted the boss.

“I have been in touch with him and I am going to enjoy a nice cup of tea back at his house to sit down and discuss a few ideas.”

Well, it looks like Solskjær is going to adopt another one of Ferguson’s famous techniques as he continues to turn around United’s season.

According to the Sun, the former Red Devils forward will be bringing back the ‘quiz night’ during team stopovers.

Ferguson was known to use general knowledge quizzes as a way to boost his team’s morale, with his players competing against one another.

As the newspaper pointed out, United players would end up going back to their rooms under former boss José Mourinho.

A United insider told the Sun: “The difference in the mood around Carrington is like night and day since Ole game in.

“We’ve even seen Ryan Giggs pay us a visit, who seemed to keep his distance when he left and Mourinho was here.

“Ole really wants the players to stick together and doesn’t want them in their hotel rooms playing on their tablets or on social media.

“Mike Phelan is back and he and Sir Alex used to love quiz night and were fiercely competitive.

“So the lads have heard they need to start brushing up on their general knowledge. It sounds just the job.”

Solskjær recently revealed that he does not want to leave United.

Where will United finish in the Premier League under Solskjær?
