Solskjaer was inadvertently the cause of Man Utd being destroyed by Haaland

It looks like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer inadvertently played a key role in the demise of Manchester United against their local rivals.

As Haaland headed in his first of three goals, Gary Neville, co-commentating for Sky Sports, made reference to the striker learning to utilise his aerial abilities while at Molde, with the Norwegian striker being coached and managed by the former United player and manager.

The 6ft 5in brute bullied the Red Devils' defence as he put three past David de Gea in Man City's 6-3 annihilation at the Etihad on Sunday, and to make things even worse, Haaland revealed that it was in fact Solskjaer who taught him how to hold his own in the air.

He told Sky Sports: 'When I was in my hometown club, Bruyne, I couldn't head the ball. I wasn't scared of it, but when you're really new to something, you're wondering how to do it.

"Then when I joined Molde with Ole, he was like 'you cannot head, we have to start doing this.' 'So almost every single day, I got crosses from him and [assistant coach] Mark Dempsey and I was heading them in.

"Mark was throwing the ball quite easily, I was standing at five metres [out] and he was in the goal. I tried to head it straight and we did it so much.

"There's nothing better than when you practise something and you see the results, thinking 'this is getting easier' or finally scoring a goal with your head. Then that's also a motivation to become better."
