Manchester United hero Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is excited about his new coaching career with the club's reserves.

Solskjaer is confident of successfully man-managing United's youngsters, telling "I believe that you have to be because what was good enough for me when I was 18 or 19 isn't good enough for them nowadays. I've learned so much about what I should have done when I was that age subsequently. I think you need to push them a bit, but the boys want to be pushed as well. It's not a doddle being a professional footballer, so I think they'll have to shed their fair share of sweat. I'm really looking forward to it. It's a great challenge.

"I did a few sessions last year and some with the youth team. I asked Choccy (Brian McClair) sometimes if I could have the Reserves to work with, to challenge myself because when you're doing coaching courses, you don't want to go in cold. I've enjoyed that and now they're my responsibility, so that's a better challenge as well."
