The ‘Baby-Faced Assassin’ tips former Red Devils teammate to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson.
One time Manchester United front man Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says veteran Welsh winger Ryan Giggs wants to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford when the Scot eventually decides to call it a day, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
Solskjaer, who starred up front for the Red Devils during the late Nineties and early 2000s, is himself current making a name as an up and coming head coach with Molde in his native Norway and has been linked of late with a number of managerial jobs in England, including those at both Blackburn Rovers and Aston Villa.
However, the former Norway international believes that current United midfield player Giggs, who has been playing for the Premier League giants since 1990/91, is positioning himself to succeed Ferguson whenever the 71-year-old does opt to retire from the game.
“He’s looking at that United job for himself, Giggsy. He’s got top potential,” Solskjaer said.
“Giggsy is going to play another year, but I’d say he’s got his eyes and ears open more to what the manager is doing.”
