United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer previously revealed he often played Football Manager when he was a player at Old Trafford.

The Norwegian told Dagbladet in 2013: “When I played for Man U, I relaxed by playing Football Manager.

“It’s a fantastic game, I have learned a lot about football. I have learned a lot about players, especially young talent.

“It resembles real life, when it comes to who will be good players. They have done incredible research.

“You could push a few buttons and get extra millions to buy a player. I never enjoyed that. I would rather win in spite of, than because of.

“Many of my players play FIFA and Football Manager. I think it helps them to understand football better.”
