Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is impressing in his role as new strikers coach.

"Ole has been working with the forwards and alongside Rene Meulensteen, our technical skills development coach," Ferguson told Inside United.

"He's started with the first team, and he's just building his confidence as a coach.

"He was always in the dressing room as one of the players and all of a sudden he's a coach.

"But he's doing great, we're really pleased with him."
