In his first interview since taking the reigns, Solskjaer told MUTV that he will be giving all of United’s players a fresh start upon his arrival.

“We have to rotate,” the United legend continued, “Everyone will get a chance. Everyone starts with a clean slate.

“You’ve got to start somewhere. I’ve seen the last few games. You pick a team now and you move on. Everyone will get their chance.”
