Solskjaer will be in charge until the end of the season, when United hope to announce a new permanent manager to succeed Mourinho. He was part of the Manchester United youth setup until 2011, signed after impressing at one of Solskjaer's soccer schools in Norway.
The 45-year-old is due to return to Molde in May and far from being under pressure at Old Trafford, the Cardiff manager believes Solskjaer has a free shot at Old Trafford.
Warnock expressed sympathy for Mourinho, whose two-and-a-half-year reign came to an end on Tuesday with United sixth in the Premier League and a distant 19 points behind leaders Liverpool after 17 games. Not much, perhaps, but it does indicate that when Solskjaer sees something in a player, he sticks with him. We're MANCHESTER UNITED. Respect.
"This is FALSE! José gave me the chance to play for the best team in the world and I only have gratitude for him".
"He feels the weakness at the top allows former players to have a greater voice".
Solskjaer's spell as United boss will start with a trip to Cardiff, where he was sacked after just nine months in 2014. "With the amount of games coming up, they have got a chance to show that they are Manchester United players".
Solskjaer said: "Of course, I have watched the Premier League, I have seen all the teams".
Although Solskjaer is deified among some United supporters for his contributions as a player, the unusual arrangement has raised questions, particularly regarding his power over players and influence on squad building. It's bad and happened to me twice, at Crystal Palace and QPR. I am one of them.
"We're a real United team".
The Norwegian told MUTV: "Playing games is the best time of your life and the more games you get, the better it is".
A message sent in a group chat made by United players reportedly revealed that Sanchez said: "I told you so!" "He carries himself brilliantly with the media, he promotes young players but most importantly he wins a lot of games of football". "To celebrate a manger getting sacked, I think that's a disgrace".
