Beckham was reunited with his former team-mate, who replaced Jose Mourinho as interim boss in mid-December, after making the trip to Manchester earlier this afternoon.

The pair played a crucial role in Manchester United’s 1999 Champions League triumph against Bayern Munich.

He posted an image of their reunion on Instagram, with the caption: “So good to be back in Manchester & so happy to see THE BOSS.”

Solskjaer has won 10 games out of 11 since being tasked with taking charge until the end of the season.

As a result of the team’s incredible form, the Molde boss is now a serious contender to earn the gig on a full-time basis.

He faces the biggest test of his reign so far tonight against PSG in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

It has been suggested Solskjaer will be given the job permanently if they progress to the last eight.

When asked at the pre-match press conference it’s too simple to suggest victory will secure him the job, Solskjaer replied: “Yes, it is too simple (to stay).

“You have so many ways of asking those questions.

“It is too simple, there are a few months left of this season.”

Solskjaer also denied matches like these are one of the reasons he took the job.

He added: “No, but I would have said yes to the job if we didn’t play PSG or in Champions League when United ring you take the chance and you think you can help them.

“Of course its fantastic game to look forward to, a test for our whole team.

“Of course any team which are missing players like [Thomas] Meunier or [Edinson] Cavani are feeling the affect, but it will give their other players a chance.

“It makes it more unpredictable for us, this time around we are guessing a bit how they are going to come.”
