“He’s done a lot. When I came back in, for me, personally, he had a plan,” Lukaku said. “He wanted me to be really sharp in three or four weeks and that’s what happened.
“We took three or four weeks, I did a lot of interval work and a lot of finishing and now I can say that I am fully fit. But then for the team, he made us play offensive football. He gives the young players confidence.
“Sometimes he’s tough but at the right time he knows also to give a compliment.
“In training we do a lot of small games, a lot of focus on our offensive part of the game and that’s what the players like. So, we just try to come in every game and win the games.”
Ashley Young said he could understand the eagerness for Solskjaer to be appointed permanently. “It’s not down to the players to decide,” the defender said. “If you look from the outside you’d say ‘Why not?’ He’s been fantastic since he’s come in, a breath of fresh air.
