The Manchester United stars didn’t hold back their happiness with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being appointed their permanent manager.
Many of the players had publicly campaigned for the Norwegian to be handed the post after exceeding expectations in his caretaker manager role.
The United board opted to hand him the job beyond this year, handing him a three year contract and showing good faith in him.
Sections of the media had claimed Jose Mourinho rubbed most of his players the wrong way so it was pleasant to see so many of them back Solskjaer.
With everyone pulling in the same direction, the club feels as united as it’s ever felt despite suffering two back to back losses.

Hopefully the players continue to support Ole through thick and thin as some fans felt they downed tools with their previous managers.
Though things never really got going with David Moyes, it was during the Louis van Gaal era were some felt the players gave up.
Manchester United had a fantastic month or two defeating some of their top six rivals in consecutive matches that showed plenty of promise but failed to build on it.
Jose Mourinho also had a fantastic first season, a solid second before the third one came around with players claimed to have turned on their manager.
