Manchester United fans couldn’t hide their delight on the social media site Twitter today when their club picked up a Premier League January award double. With manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer picking up Manager of the Month and striker Marcus Rashford, Player of the Month.
Solskjaer, who took over from Jose Mourinho in December has led a turnaround at Old Trafford, guiding the team he represented as a player between 1996 and 2007 to nine wins and a single draw from their 10 matches under his caretaker reign, so far.
Four of those victories came last month, making him the first Norwegian to win any PL monthly award and the first United boss to claim the accolade since Sir Alex Ferguson in 2012.
Meanwhile, Rashford was key to the Red Devils’ form in January and quite rightly was crowned Player of the Month for his efforts in the four games. These included three goals.
It was no surprise that United fans were over the moon when they heard the news today and below is a selection of the best reaction Tweets…
