The Red Devils gave a meek performance at Molineux on Saturday night, with goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota securing a 2-1 win for the hosts.
According to The Sun, Solskjaer was livid with his team’s display in the dressing room afterwards, unleashing the ‘hairdryer treatment’ made famous by Sir Alex Ferguson.

Solskjaer brought up their former manager in his tirade, accusing the team of going back to the Mourinho days with their lifeless performance.
It was the angriest any of the players have ever seen Solskjaer, and he ended by telling them to use the international break to analyse their own individual performances.
‘This was the poorest we’ve played,’ Solskjaer told BBC Sport after the game.
Solskjaer was unhappy with how little threat his United side posed (Picture: Getty)‘We started too slowly and played into their hands. Our possession wasn’t bright enough and quick enough, so it’s disappointing.
‘This was a big step backwards, mainly because of the quality of the possession and the passing. We’ve had a great run and now we’ve had two defeats. Against Arsenal we just couldn’t score, and this was poor.’
