EXCLUSIVE by Daniel Cutts: OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER arrived Carrington for Manchester United's Christmas lunch where he will help serve the food in a bid to spread festive cheer among his squad.
The Norwegian and the rest of the team turned up in their swanky motors ahead of the do Solskjaer told the players they must attend.
Solskjaer has told the squad he expects them to attend which will be different to last year under Jose Mourinho.
Last season the players arrived in drips and drabs and the Special One stayed in his office for most of the time in what was a sombre affair.
It was described as the worst Xmas lunch at United for a couple of decades by people who could be bothered to attend.
There was a notable dip in the mood last season and Solskjaer is keen to avoid that this time around.
In years gone past, the youth team would perform a pantomime while Sir Alex Ferguson was once hit in the face with a mince pie as part of the light-hearted festive fun.
FORMER Manchester United graduate Callum Whelan has heaped praise on the academy at Old Trafford and says Paul Pogba is just too good to keep up with.
The 21-year-old said: “The standard's a joke. For me it's the top standard.
“When Pogba came, he was the standout, where I look back and thought, that's not even the standard above.
“I don't know if you can get to that standard.”
ARSENAL starlet Gabriel Martinelli has revealed that training with Manchester United has had a positive impact on his football.
The Brazilian also hailed Paul Pogba for making him feel comfortable during that time.
He told DAZN: ''There was a project between Ituano and Manchester United, and they always took a player. And I always came for these trips.
''I could neither speak English nor French, but he [Pogba] said tudo bem and took the picture with me nicely, he was super humble.
''Those training days were super important for me to adapt to the style of play, the players and how fast the game is here''.
OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has confirmed he will NOT sell Paul Pogba in January.
The French World Cup winner has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford after featuring just six times this season.
Pogba has not played for the Red Devils since the 1-1 draw with Arsenal on September 20.
But Solskjaer said: “He is not being sold in January.
“I hope he will play before the end of the year, but I am not going to push him. I can't risk any setbacks.”
FORMER Juventus manager and Manchester United target Massimiliano Allegri has sensationally claimed that tactics are “bulls***”.
Speaking to ESPN, the highly-rated coach slammed the suggestion that coaches may get a better view of what's happening in a game from the bird's-eye view of the stands.
He said: “Mega bulls***, one of the biggest bulls*** I've ever heard.
“A coach has to be on the sideline. He has to breathe the game, he has to understand when it's time to make a sub or take off his best player because the team needs a different kind of player.
“How can you see that from the stands? I've had to do it a few times and you feel detached. You're disconnected.
“You don't hear the sounds of the pitch. You don't look the players in the face and you have to do that in order to decide whether it's time to take them off or say something to encourage or spur them on.
“If you're not there, how can you do that? All you can do from the stands is phone the bench and say, 'Take him off,' just like the fans do.
“The perception is different from the sideline. They're making out football to be an exact science. If that's the case, the coach may as well go to the cinema.”
