Manchester United's caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has issued a stern warning to his players that he will be restoring Sir Alex Ferguson's discipline at Old Trafford.
United appointed the Norwegian football manager, who had an illustrious career as a player at Manchester, as their new manager until the end of the ongoing 2018/19 Premier League season.

In his first pre-match press conference as United gaffer at Aon Training Complex, the 45-year-old said he was not afraid to give his players Ferguson's hairdryer treatment if it was called for.
"Maybe I should get the hairdryer out of my pocket because I have got a hair dryer. When the hair need lifting I use it on myself but I'm also not afraid to lay down the law," Solskjaer said.
United's new boss said he wanted his players to play for the love of the game like kids but said he would employ Fergie's hard-line approach if things were not in order.
"When your kids disappoint you, you tell them off, you don't give them some chocolate do you? You treat players similar to how you treat your kids," United's interim manager said.
The Man United gaffer said he would be in close contact with Ferguson throughout his six months at United and employ some of the ideas the decorated ex-manager had to offer.
"I'm not sure what input he had in me coming here but when I got the call I texted the boss and I'm going to enjoy a nice cup of tea back at his house and discuss a few ideas," he said.
YEN.com.gh understands it did not take much convincing to make the ex-United player - famously dubbed Super-sub by club loyalists - to take up the job and leave the comfort of his homeland.
The Norwegian was at United's beck and call and all it took was one phone call from his former team to accept the job.
And as life is full of ironies, Solskjaer comes up against his former club as a manager in the English topflight Cardiff City, on Saturday, December 22.
The game will certainly determine how things will shape up for the Red Devils in the near future.
