He added: "It's more hard if you go to a foreign country". But I know the job.

"I think we should have given him more time, accepted that results weren't going to be the way we hoped they would be and that playing would be a little bit different". I think that really would have helped him [keeping Mike Phelan], had he had someone with that kind of experience. The injury to Neymar worries me because Neymar is a world class player and PSG are less good without Neymar.

"There are no favourites". Things have re-balanced since the draw.

Solskjaer has yet to taste defeat since taking over from Jose Mourinho before Christmas and the change in mood is clear for all to see on the pitch, with the club's creative players enjoying the freedom encouraged by their new boss.

United legend Schmeichel has questioned some of the calls which have been made in Manchester, with it his opinion that persevering with Moyes would have delivered greater stability.

But Schmeichel believes one old boss they could regret sacking is Moyes, even though he lead the team to 7th place a year after they had won the league title.
