  • Soccer – Pre Season Friendly – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Testimonial – Manchester United v Espanyol – Old Trafford

Solskjaer was in the dugout for the first time on Saturday and the Norwegian oversaw a stunning 5-1 win at Cardiff.

But a disappointing campaign prior to that has left the club sixth in the Premier League going into the Boxing Day fixtures - 19 points behind leaders Liverpool - and Matic insists Mourinho alone can not be blamed for their poor performances.

"Of course we want the top four; we want to be playing in the Champions League next season", Shaw said.

"It's a good move for the club, and it'll be fascinating to see how Ole sets the team up and how they play".

"As you will all be aware, the legendary Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is our new boss and we couldn't have started off upon his return to the club in a better way".

Man United looked a completely different team.

After the caution of his predecessor Jose Mourinho, Solskjaer let the players off the leash and invited them to play with freedom and expression. "At times [under Mourinho] it didn't happen".

Wayne Rooney summed it up well with his thoughts at half-time, by which time the Red Devils had already scored three goals.

"I don't know", said Matic, who played under Mourinho at Chelsea and Old Trafford.

But the England full-back insisted Mourinho should be respected for the job he did at the club. "People might be quick to forget what Jose did for United - the three trophies he won - he did a lot. Not everything worked well, but (some) things went well", he told the British media.

"The last game he had as a manager, 5-5 [at West Brom], that was nearly the ideal end for him as a manager, and I want the players to be similar, be the kids that love to play football and go out in front of the best fans in the world".
