Former striker Solskjaer wants to take over from Sir Alex Ferguson.
Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he wants to return to the Premier League club one day to manage the Red Devils.
Solskjaer, currently Molde manger, spent over a decade at Old Trafford and went on to manage the reserve team once injury curtailed his playing days.
The time he spent with Sir Alex Ferguson has shaped his management style and the Norwegian feels it can only help him.
“Maybe it sounds stupid but my dream is to manage United. But I am not saying it is going to happen,” the ex-striker is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
“I worked with Alex Ferguson for 15 seasons as a player and then as reserve team coach, his methodology has influenced my philosophy. Almost everything I know I learnt from Sir Alex.
“Both of us believe in ourselves, we always want to win and we put our faith in youngsters and work hard,” he concluded.
Solskjaer is currently making waves in his homeland having led Molde to a first league title in their history and followed it up by retaining the trophy a year later.
Whether the ex-United hitman has the credentials to take over at Old Trafford remains to be seen but the man himself is in no doubt.
