LUK AFTER HIM

BELGIUM boss Roberto Martinez believes Romelu Lukaku is being subjected to negative treatment that he doesn't deserve.

The Man United striker has struggled this season, netting just twice in 17 games, despite his key part in his national side's World Cup campaign.

PERFECT START

MANCHESTER UNITED scored five for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's last game as they thrashed Cardiff.

Paul Pogba ran the show in midfield while Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard all impressed and scored.

'ALL THE DIFFERENCE'

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has revealed how Wayne Rooney helped him to restore Manchester United's swagger via text messages.

It emerged after the full-time whistle the helping hand Rooney had played when offering Solskjaer advice earlier this week after replacing sacked Jose Mourinho.

'I WANT TO THANK HIM'

PAUL POGBA reckons Jose Mourinho helped him improve as a player.

The Manchester United midfielder spoke for the first time following the departure of Mourinho with the pair not enjoying a good relationship.

TWEET EMOTION

PAUL POGBA, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial were among the Manchester United stars to take to social media after beating Cardiff.

Lingard was in red-hot form, scoring from the penalty spot and then rounding off the win in the final minute.

He tweeted: "MOOD! Enjoyable day at the office #StopDancingTheySaid #BeYourself," along with a photo of him celebrating with Nemanja Matic.

OLE KING COLE

BOURNEMOUTH ace Josh King will be on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s radar next month.

The Manchester United caretaker insists he “will have an input” on transfers after getting appointed until the end of the season.

ROO'S THE BOSS?

WAYNE ROONEY dreams of becoming the Manchester United manager.

The former Red Devils striker, 33, made the confession as he appeared as a pundit for BT Sport's coverage of United's 5-1 win over Cardiff.

'NEVER FEEL SORRY'

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER admits he can’t feel sorry for sacked Jose Mourinho.

The Special One was sacked by Manchester United on Tuesday after moaning he was the victim of a “manhunt” following stinging club legend attacks on him.

PACIFY POG

PATRICE EVRA is being lined up by Manchester United as the man to tame Paul Pogba.

As Sunsport reported, Evra has twice put back publication of his autobiography amid claims that United have offered him a role in the New Year before the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

HEIR DRYER

NICE GUY Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will give ­Manchester United stars a blast of the hairdryer.

Legendary Old Trafford chief Alex Ferguson used to hand Solskjaer and his team-mates verbal roastings so hot they were nicknamed the hairdryer.

BOARD GAMES

JOSE MOURINHO played a dangerous game against Manchester United's board and came out on the losing side.

Karren Brady reckons The Special One was the one to blame for this season's struggles, not the Glazers, Ed Woodward, Paul Pogba, the squad, the fans or the structure.

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is A New Hope for Man Utd now Darth Vader Jose is gone.

The Norwegian will channel his inner Luke Skywalker to rescue the club and end Mourinho's Empire once and for all.

TRADITIONS WILL BE BACK
