- Solskjaer was known for his exceptional skills in front of goal during his active playing days
- The Man United boss recently showcased his ability in a training drill with Pogba and Lukaku
- He is set to play for United in Sunday's Treble Reunion friendly at Old Trafford
Manchester United back-up goalkeeper, Lee Grant, has revealed club boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, still has an insatiable appetite for clinical finishes years after hanging his boots.
The current United manager paraded his impeccable scoring skills during a training drill involving Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba before the end of the season.
At the time, Grant, who was between the sticks disclosed he was left with no chance to stop some of the Norwegian's strikes that left the rest of the squad members stunned.
"It was the first time I managed to get a glimpse of whether he still had it or not. We had a shooting session and I was doing some one-on-one work with Lukaku and Pogba. The manager came over and I could see he was limbering up in the corner of my eye," Grant narrated
"He got involved and he was still pretty deadly, I have to be honest. He had some bad luck because he kept hitting the same post in the same spot. But the touch was there and the instinct was still there," he submitted.
