'Solskjaer should get out now!': Fans react to Man United's fast start under caretaker boss

'Solskjaer should get out now!': Fans react to Man United's fast start under caretaker boss
Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had the perfect start to life in charge as his side netted twice in his first 30 minutes as the Red Devils' boss.

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

And the Norwegian manager couldn't have wished for a better start to life in charge of the Red Devils, as striker Marcus Rashford fired in a 25-yard free kick to put United in charge in the opening moments of the match.

The United bench were understandably ecstatic at their fast start, as Rashford's free kick broke the deadlock after just three minutes.

United's lightning-fast start under Solskjaer prompted fans to jump onto social media to offer their way-too-early takes on the Solskjaer era at United.

Irish bookies Paddy Power took the pragmatic view, suggesting now would be the perfect time for Solskjaer to leave United, considering the fact that it can't possibly get any better than this.

The United fans were in good voice ahead of kickoff, as they blew the dust off an old terrace favorite and added their "You are my Solskjaer" song to the late-2018 matchday playlist.

One fan suggested that Solskjaer's already made his mark on the team, and the change has been both immediate and noticeable.

And when United doubled their lead through Ander Herrera on 29 minutes, UK bookies Bet365 made a pertinent observation, as French midfielder Paul Pogba appeared to be putting rather more of a shift than he'd shown in recent matches for former boss Jose Mourinho.

Will it last? Can it last? Could a successful Solskjaer stint result in the Norwegian fan favorite getting the job on a permanent basis?

Or is Solskjaer simply keeping the Old Trafford managerial seat warm for Mauricio Pochettino, or Zinedine Zidane?
