Man Utd legend Solskjaer keen on succeeding Ferguson

Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eyeing an Old Trafford return.

The ex-Old Trafford striker has turned down offers from English clubs to stay at Molde in Norway — and he hopes to follow Alex Ferguson’s footsteps in management.

Solskjaer said: “I’m not naive enough to say I can do that job but in life you should have big dreams and big goals.

“It’s a dream but let’s take just one step at a time. I want to become a manager in England.

“At the moment I’ve just started and it’s been two years more or less in Norway. So the time will come. I’ve spoken to clubs and explained it’s a bit early as I want to learn and don’t want to jump too big a bridge at the start.

“Managing is not easy but it’s very enjoyable when you are winning, it’s challenging when you have a bad start.”

Solskjaer has followed Fergie’s example of buying players he believes have strong characters.

He added: “After playing at United, the best players were always the best people — like Roy Keane, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Edwin van der Sar.”
