Speaking to the press he said, “We are all different to how we manage people and the manager (Ferguson) was different to every individual,”
“Of course, maybe I should get the hairdryer out of my pocket because I’ve got a hairdryer — when my hair needs lifting I use it on myself. But I am also not afraid of, if you like, laying down the law.
He said that he would treat players like his kids to enhance them on the football field constantly and make them better as every day tickles.
“You know with your kids when they disappoint you, you tell them off, you don’t give them some chocolate do you?

Paul Pogba, who fell out with Jose Mourinho has been backed by the new Manchester United boss. The French International did not have a good relationship with the Portuguese International for some time, but the new gaffer wants to get the best out of him.

Speaking to the press conference, the Norwegian said that he wants to get the best out of Pogba, who has often been criticized for putting in substandard performances “He’s a World Cup winner. Paul is a terrific lad and when I had him as a kid, he was always there, the happy-go-lucky lad.
“He hasn’t changed personality-wise. He’s a better player of course and he’s one that I want to get the best out of. You have so many quality players that I want to get the best out of. He’s no different to anyone else in that respect.”
The 45-year-old has denied that the players have more power than managers in the footballing world these days.
“I’m not sure about you saying the power has gone to the dressing room,” he said. “Football has evolved, of course, and the gaffer (Ferguson) was in charge of more or less the whole club.
“Football is developing. The structure of the club has developed. The power is with the manager. He picks the team, the tactics, the strategy.
“The philosophy is in these walls. That legacy is more important than any player power. I have to say being a Man United player is a privilege and I think all of them want to succeed here.”
The Red Devils will travel to Cardiff City today to play Neil Warnock’s men who are sixteenth in the Premier League.
