Blackburn boss Hughes tribute to Man Utd's Solskjaer

Former Manchester United striker Mark Hughes has paid tribute to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has announced his retirement due to injury.

Hughes, now manager of Blackburn, said: "Ole is guaranteed a place in United's history and football's history with his goal in the European Cup final (in 1999).

"But he brought so much more to Manchester United. He had a huge influence over many years.

"I met him on many occasions. He is a true professional, a very humble man but a very successful one.

"Ole has many qualities and I'm sure that will help him going into another period in his life."
