Speaking on Thursday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Welshman said: “For Solskjaer now, it makes such a difference.
“He had no power whatsoever until today, but now they’ve just given him the power to sign players.
“Now he can say to players, ‘I’m building something for the next three years and I want you to come play for me’.
“Also, discipline-wise he can now start pointing the finger at some of the players he wants to get rid of and he’s got the power to actually get them out of the club.

“Solskjaer has all the power at the club now and he deserves it.”
