Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen has been impressed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his first weeks involved with the reserve-team.
"As a player, Ole was so productive off the bench, he had a great ability to read games and opponents, and that will help him also as a coach and a manager," Meulensteen told ManUtd.com.
Solskjaer brings down the curtain on his playing career with this weekend's testimonial against Espanyol, and Reds coach Meulensteen expects the Norwegian's career move into management to mirror his success as a United player.
"The things that made Ole succeed as a player will make him succeed in management," said Meulensteen. "He's got great determination and focus, as well as a great ability to learn, and these qualities are the same as those you need to be a successful manager."
