Did his Man Utd team look and feel like a Sir Alex Ferguson's team at Old Trafford?
'That was the first thing I said to him when I met him.
The Belgium global has made three substitute appearances in the Premier League, scoring twice, as Solskjaer prefers a front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard. The level of his performances at the moment, the maturity in his finishing, his work-rate, it is just a dream to have players like him in a team.
"So at the moment I think he's playing the best football in his career".
And when he was asked if he thought Rashford was now the best centre-forward in the division, Solskjaer said: "You can argue for many strikers but I'm glad he's in my team".

Pogba produced a magnificent ball to release Rashford before the England worldwide placed a finish past Tottenham number one Hugo Lloris.
The Red Devils have been in breathtaking form and have won all 6 of their games that Solskjaer has overseen. "He had missed some chances and I said "no problem, you'll be alright, just settle down a little bit". When you are full of confidence you think you are going to win every game.
Nearly 25 years to the day since Matt Busby died, Solskjaer made it seven wins from seven in all competitions on the one-month anniversary of his appointment as two of the players to have shone in his short tenure scored again. "Yes, we will have to react to it and get up the next morning". But in any game of football you are never sure until it's over. There's loads more pressure at the bottom when I was with Cardiff.
"Credit to a group of players that seized the opportunity to get back in the game".
Solskjaer said: "I wouldn't do it but if he is comfortable with it". They are hard to break down and have good defenders, good midfielders and, of course, when they put the ball in the box, you have to defend.
