Juan Mata says the return of “legendary” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United means it is time for optimism at Old Trafford, reports .skysports.com.

United midfielder said it had been a “different week” at the club following Jose Mourinho’s dismissal and thanked his former boss for the trophies they won together. Solskjaer’s arrival appeared to have a liberating effect on the squad.

“The legendary Solskjaer is our new boss and we couldn’t have started off upon his return in a better way. It’s a convincing win against Cardiff and it’ll raise morale going into the end of 2018. It is time to be optimistic to look ahead,” Mata wrote in his weekly blog.
