Derby County manager and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has hailed the work of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his decision to bring Paul Pogba back into his side.
The Red Devils’ record goalscorer also backed his former club to go and become Premier League champions this season.

Many believe they can challenge the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City for the title this year after a brilliant run of form over the last few months.
One of those is recently appointed Derby boss Rooney, who opened up on the current United team ahead of the Rams’ trip to QPR this weekend.
"The last few years, Manchester United haven't been ready to challenge for the title, but now they've brought in players like Fernandes and Cavani - players with a winning mentality - that has helped massively," said Rooney.
"And now the squad is challenging for a Premier League title. I said to the coaches in the office here six weeks ago that I thought Manchester United will win the League. I still feel that today.
"Paul Pogba will have a massive part to play in that. Those players that have been brought in with winning mentalities will relieve some of the pressure from Paul a bit, and he can now show his quality on the pitch."
Pogba gave his thoughts on United’s title chances on Thursday, reflecting on the work they have put in to get themselves up the league table, and what they must do to stay there.
"It's never enough. We are still far from the trophy,” the Frenchman told the club's official website. "It's been hard to get here, it's going to be even harder to stay there.

"Be arrogant in the way that 'yes, we are proud to be there and we want to stay there', but we have done nothing yet so we need to keep working.
"We are happy with what's happening but we want this to carry on. We want this more and more.
"If we think 'we won and we have arrived', this is when we are going to drop."
