Solskjaer was appointed as boss on an interim basis until the end of the season following Mourinho’s sacking in December.
He has made a stunning start to life in the Old Trafford hotseat, guiding his side to 10 wins in his first 11 games in charge.
The former striker’s arrival has sparked a significant improvement in the performances of a number of players, including Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Martial.
And Martial hopes Solskjaer can land the gig permanently.
“It’s easier for us to play this style of football.”

“We have a coach with different approach and we’re trying to do what he’s asking us to do,” he said.
“Perhaps it’s easier for us to play this style of football.
“Obviously things are going really well, we are really happy.
“I hope we can keep him, but it is not down to us.
“I think when Ole came in he had a lot of confidence and determination.
“That’s really boosted us and obviously we are trying to pay it back in kind and hope things work out well.”
Martial struggled for regular game time under Mourinho but he’s flourishing under Solskjaer.
The France international bagged his 11th goal of the season in Saturday’s win over Fulham and he’s revealed that Solskjaer is encouraging him in front of goal.
“He’s asked me to attack more,” he added.
“That’s my job, to make the difference and be more decisive.
“Things are working out well for the other strikers too and I hope we can all continue to be effective and efficient.
“He has often said that to me, and even previous managers have said that to me. I will score more goals.”
