His predecessors in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era - David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho - all, at one time or another, said the wrong thing, but Solskjaer has usually found the right tone.
After trips to Holland, Serbia, Kazakhstan, Belgium and Austria, United are now in Germany searching for continental silverware in a new-look final-eight tournament. Winning the Europa league would add the cherry on top of what has been a brilliant few months.
"It also means more dedication and more focus because it makes you think 'this is what I wanted'".
"He's professional, he's a fantastic boy and I'm delighted that we've got him in the team".
'Physically he's at the best level in his career and I'm just looking forward to seeing him improve. It would be the biggest achievement.
Victory will clinch Solskjaer's first major trophy as United boss.
This is Copenhagen's first European quarter-final but Solbakken knows a thing or two about shocking United, having led the side to victory against them in a Champions League fixture almost 14 years ago.
Manchester United trained in Cologne on Sunday as they prepared to take on Copenhagen in the Europa League quarter-finals.
But we find it hard to place such a win above the treble of 1999.
But Solskjaer isn't getting too far ahead of himself. At the moment, we don't have that problem.
"We are in a odd period at the moment, unprecedented, we've got to make the most of it and if we are able to go through to the semi-final and final it would mean a lot to the club, players, supporters and staff". It's changed a little bit. That passion and edge to the game is missing - the fans have to be there. They have to be there. "But you also play for the team and the three of them have been backing each other up".
Only six players, including United's Bruno Fernandes, have scored more than Greenwood's five goals in the Europa League this term and he hopes there will be more to follow against Copenhagen, including one with his head. The Norwegian had his moment in the sun when he scored the victor in the 1999 Champions League final. In that sense, the pressure is off for Solskjaer with Champions League qualification already assured, but the 47-year-old does not view it as a free hit.
"We went into this season knowing that the Europa League is a great chance for us to get a trophy, to get far in a tournament", Solskjaer said. We have been to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup and the FA Cup and the next step is to get past that. We were ranked number two in the world, so we played in a World Cup together.
"But also to groom a few of the youngsters and it was flawless for us". "Of course we all want to play in the Champions League, but maybe we wouldn't have had the chance to play the likes of Mason and Brandon [Williams without the Europa League]".
