Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits the Manchester United influence runs through his champion Molde team.

Since returning to Norway he has lead Molde to two league titles.

The 40-year-old said: “I brought coaches from Man United over with me and we coach them in the same philosophy as I was coached when I played there.

“I’ve come back to a club I knew well from before. It’s a club that’s always had loads of talented players but it’s always been regarded as a ’nearly’ club.

“Seven second positions, loads of bronze finishes, a couple of cup winners’ medals.

“I think it’s the belief in themselves — the belief we show them, that we trust them, that helped a lot here.”
