Following his side’s remarkable victory over Paris Saint Germain last night, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was seen chceking in into a dry cleaning store the following morning. Manchester United became the first side ever to progress in a knockout tie after losing 2-0 in the first leg at home as a result of their dramatic 3-1 win on the night.
Marcus Rashford’s last-gasp penalty sparked unforgettable scenes in the Parc des Princes and saw Solskjaer being tipped to be handed the top job on a permanent basis. But it was back to ordinary day to day life for the Norwegian the following morning as he was spotted at the dry cleaners just hours after their return to Manchester!
He dropped his club suit into the dry cleaners in Hale Village, Cheshire near his home after taking PSG to the cleaners last night. It could be that it needed cleaning after the chaotic dressing room celebrations, with the jubilant scenes going viral on social media after being filmed by players. Solskjaer has led a remarkable revival at Old Trafford since taking over from Jose Mourinho in December.
Despite only being given the job on a temporary basis, he has dragged them back into the Premier League top four and now kept their Champions League dreams alive. Like most onlookers, United defender Luke Shaw now reckons its a case of when rather than if the former player is handed the job permanently. “I don’t think I need to say much after all these results, it looks certain,” Shaw said.
“We all love Ole and we love the job he’s done so far. We’re enjoying everything that’s going on at the moment and the results have shown that. “We’ve had a couple of blips but that’s nine away matches (won in a row) now, they’re not easy games, but it shows what sort of job Ole and his staff have done. “Long may that continue.”
United will have little time to reflect on their Paris success – they are back in Premier League action with a crucial clash with Arsenal on Sunday.
