OLE GUNNAR SOLKSJAER was a proud dad tonight as his son made his professional debut – even if it was against him.
Noah came on as a second-half substitute for Norwegian side Kristiansund in their 1-0 defeat to Manchester United.
And there was a tender moment on the sidelines as the 19-year-old prepared to enter the field of play.
Dad, who had his other son Elia in the dugout with him, came out and patted his lad on the back.
But the teen didn't have too much time to impress as he entered in the 85th minute.
In the end it was Juan Mata who proved the hero as he won, and then scored a penalty in the 90th minute.
Speaking about his son's special night, Ole said: “Of course Noah makes his debut for them in front of 28,000, it’s not very often a Norwegian does.
“And Elia next to me enjoyed it and that’s what it’s about when you come back here.
“Their players have been in our dressing room, changed shirts, swapped shirts, taken pictures, they’ve been absolutely outstanding our boys, they’re a joy to see now.
“The group, the camaraderie is good, atmosphere is really good so hopefully we’ll get that into results when the league starts.”

“The rumours are completely false,” said the spokesman.
The 24-year-old has been linked with Old Trafford all summer following an impressive 12 months that saw him bag 19 times in 31 appearances.
