Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces his 100th Premier League game as a manager on Saturday admitting he is ‘older, wiser and greyer’ for the experience.
Solskjaer’s first game came in 2014 with Cardiff City after starting his managerial career at home in Norway with Molde.
He will now reach his century in United’s clash with Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday.

‘I didn’t know it was my 100th game,’ he admitted. ‘I’ve really enjoyed it. You don’t enjoy it when you lose, but you enjoy testing yourself against good coaches and managers.
‘I’m a bit older and wiser hopefully and a lot more grey up top. What you learn is the game is moving so much quicker you have to keep up with the pace of it.
‘When I started in 2014 with Cardiff and where it is now, it’s a different ball game. Players get better and fitter, and it’s more tactical.’

The occasion also marks the 63rd anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster, and Solskjaer is determined to produce a fitting performance.
‘It’s only the fourth time the game is being played on the actual anniversary and it’s important we put on a fitting performance and hopefully we can honour them with the result,’ he added.
‘It’s such an important part of the history and spirit of the club. We have spoken to the players who come into the club, who have not been here and are part of this anniversary.
‘It’s a big day for everyone and has always been an emotional one. Hopefully we can put a team out that shows the Man United spirit.’
