Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Is Privately Tutoring Two Manchester United Players
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly privately tutoring two of his Manchester United players.
According to Metro, the caretaker boss has held 'private after-training sessions' with both Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku.
The 45-year-old has been taking sessions with his forward players after training to help them improve on their positional play, anticipation and movement.
Each session lasts for 15-20 minutes. It's another sign of Solskjaer's hands-on approach.
Martial has featured prominently under Solskjaer whose opted for a three-man attack in the shape of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard as well as the aforementioned Frenchman.
Lukaku, on the other hand, isn't a regular. The Belgium frontman has predominately featured as a substitute under the Norwegian.
Though he may be returning to the starting XI following a injury hammer blow.
Martial and Lingard both limped off on Tuesday vs. Paris Saint-Germain, and Solskjaer has confirmed the pair will be out for a period of time.

He's also said his side are not panicking following the Champions League defeat.
"You don't panic because you have lost a game," said Solskjaer. "You don't change everything, because it does not change the mindset at all.
"We need to keep working on the way we want to play football. The way we approach the games will always be with an attacking, positive mind.
"We want to go to Chelsea, Liverpool here, we still want to impose ourselves on those games. Quite a few other teams have injuries (too), so you have to adapt.
"It's a different feel. I hate losing games, the boys hate losing games. They have been down but there is no point dwelling on it, we need to get going again.
"You have to bounce back at this club and away at Chelsea is one of the tougher challenges.
"We know there was a seven-to-eight-minute spell against PSG where we lost our way, but we were not too bad defensively (overall)."
United resume their campaign by facing Chelsea in the FA Cup.
