"I’ll spend some time with my family. That’s been probably the most difficult part, through the pandemic, with Norway being open and here being closed.
"My family moved back to Norway and the young one, he loves it back there, so we’ve lived apart. So, I’ll spend some time with them."

He, however, was quick to reveal he has an itching desire to return to football management at some stage.

"I’m a hundred per cent sure to create a football environment, that’s where I’m good at and at some point, I’ll probably be back [working in football]."

Solskjaer departs Old Trafford without winning any trophies across his three-year spell as manager - missing out narrowly on some - including the Europa League title last season where United lost on penalties to Villarreal.

His former teammate Michael Carrick has since been appointed as the caretaker as the club looks for a substantive replacement.
