It led to Mourinho being jokingly compared to comedy character Alan Partridge, who lived in a Norwich hotel and kept his own plate handy for mealtimes.

The Portuguese stayed there for two-and-a-half years and kipped back at his London abode when he had free time.

But Solskjaer is determined to make the city his own again, just like he did when he arrived in 1996.

He said: “I love it to be fair, and I have to say I look forward to getting up in the morning to start work again, I always do in football.

“I love working with people, trying to improve people.

“I’m still in the hotel but I’ve found a place.

“I’ve been driving around a bit and finding my bearings, I’ve met mates so it’s not like I’m on my own.”

Solskjaer knows he will be in the North West for at least the next six months, with a permanent job waiting in the wings if he impresses Ed Woodward.

The Treble hero of 20 years ago will be interviewed for the position, with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino also being touted to take over at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer also refused to be drawn on comments Mourinho made on BeIN Sports yesterday during his punditry stint on the channel for the AFC Asian Cup.

The United boss said: “I can’t really comment on everything he says.

“I’m enjoying working with these boys, that’s all I can say.”
