Solskjaer earns praise as Manchester United reserve coach

Solskjaer, retired from football in 2007 after a serious knee injury but remains a hero at Manchester United after scoring the winning goal in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

Speaking to MUTV, Neville said: "Ole is a great person and he will be a great coach and a great influence on those lads in the reserves."

The United skipper also revealed that Solskjaer had also helped him last season as he fought to recover from a serious ankle injury which kept him out of most of the campaign.

"Last season he worked with me quite a lot along with Rene (Meulensteen) in coming back from injury and he also worked with the first team," revealed Neville before adding, "I really enjoyed working with him because he's just a good person to be around. Ole makes you feel good all the time and that's what he'll do with the reserves."
