Manchester United are in a rich vein of form at the moment and the players are enjoying every moment of it as they smiled and waved for pictures after arriving for training on Friday morning.
This is a clear contrast to the mood from before Christmas as United struggled for wins and looked miserable under the now departed Jose Mourinho.
Following several fallouts and arguments, a number of United’s star players cut glum figures when they arrived for training under Mourinho but not now.
Not now especially since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment has seen the Reds find themselves back in the hunt for a top four spot in the middle of a hectic festive period – a dream start for Solskjaer and what appears to be a very good gamble for Ed Woodward so far.
The players to revitalised, re-energised, and most importantly, happy after four wins on the bounce under their interim manager.
Waving for photographers and flashing a smile before heading into Carrington is an indication into how Solskjaer has got his new set of players on side and focused once again.
Now Solskjaer faces his next task in preparing his players for their upcoming FA Cup clash with Reading on Saturday afternoon.
Solskjaer will put his men through their paces on Friday afternoon as he will hope he doesn’t become another casualty when it comes to the magic of the FA Cup.
And while he continues to prepare his team, Solskjaer has confirmed that he has not held talks with the club’s hierarchy about his future.
The Norwegian has made the perfect start to his interim tenure at Old Trafford, becoming the first United manager since Sir Matt Busby to win his first four league games, leading to increased speculation that he may be given the job full-time.
Solskjaer said: ‘It’s early doors. Of course when I came in they were open and honest about they’re going to have a process looking for the next manager. But the more you’re here, the more you enjoy it.
‘I’ve said one game at a time and the day they announce the next manager, if it’s me or someone else, good luck.’
Already a hero to the fans as a player, Solskjaer has received a rapturous welcome back to the club, but he added: ‘I don’t get distracted easily. I’m very focused.
‘I know what my job is. My job is now Reading, then we go to Dubai to prepare for Tottenham. That’s my job. It’s not my job to rate myself and judge myself. That’s up to someone else.’
