         However, the Norwegian boss insists there is no pressure to play the 36-year-old in every game. It depends on many factors as well.

         “No, it’s impossible to let him go,” Solskjaer said. “He’s 36 years old.”

         “Mason (Greenwood) is 19 years old, so it’s the same. I have to manage his playing and I have to manage the 36-year-old as well.”

         Meanwhile, Solskjaer admitted that the arrivals of both Ronaldo and Raphael Varane helped elevate the rest of the squad.

         “Of course, when you are for the quality of the team the more. The competition gets better and the more leads you have.”

         “I think seeing Raphael and Cristiano come in makes everyone dizzy because they are winners.”

         “They won everything they needed. and they demanded to themselves that the other children on the team The rest saw and thought what it took to be at the top. So it’s good for everyone.”

Another player to get on the scoresheet in the weekend victory was Jesse Lingard. The England forward, who enjoyed a successful loan spell at West Ham in the second half of last season, came off the bench in the 66th minute and added United’s fourth in injury time.

The 28-year-old also struck twice in England’s victory over Andorra last week and Solskjaer feels he has benefited from his time away.

Solskjaer said: “Jesse has had his hard times and he is a lovely boy – or man now.

“He was allowed to go out to find himself. I could have kept him because I know how good a player he is but he showed everyone with West Ham and England what kind of player he is.

“It was a special day for him, coming back and scoring a goal in front of the fans. He is a Man United kid. He has grown up with the Man United kit on since he was a baby, so I am so pleased for him.” According to ufabet
