Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker until the end of the season last month after Manchester United sacked Jose Mourinho.
He has gone on to win his first eight games at the helm, making him an immediate hit with the adoring Old Trafford faithful.
And he is clearly a favourite off the pitch too – if his gesture on his first day is anything to go by.
Dion Dublin was at the Carrington Training Complex when Solskjaer returned and he saw the Norwegian go straight to a long-standing member of staff with a box of chocolates on reception.
He then gave her a hug and a big kiss before going upstairs to his office.
“I was there on his very first day when he turned up at the training ground, Ole,” he said.
“He just bowled in like he’d been there the whole of his life.
“The first thing he did was take some chocolates to Kath at reception, that’s the first thing he did.
“The first person he saw was Kath. Kath’s been there for 50 years, he took chocolates to her and gave her a big kiss. Then it was straight upstairs to the office.”
Such is the turnaround at the club, Solskjaer this week insisted he will not be satisfied with a top-four finish in the Premier League as he targets success in two cup competitions in the second half of the season.
Sixth-placed United have won all six league games since Solskjaer replaced Mourinho to close the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea from 11 points to three, while they are still in the FA Cup and Champions League contentions.
Dublin added: “The atmosphere has changed at the training ground. It’s changed at the ground having been to many of their home games as well.
“If you have got players who are happy to play for you, and for the club again, and the badge means something, you will get results like that.”
