Man Utd legend Solskjaer: I know I must wait to land Fergie's job

Molde coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confesses he wants to one day manage Manchester United. Solskjaer has now led Molde to back-to-back titles in Norway.

"I have been asked that question and answered that question hundreds of times. I'm not thinking I am ready to do this (be United's manager) and I am not thinking it will happen one day but you have to dream," Ole told the Manchester Evening News.

"Sir Alex Ferguson always taught us to have big ambitions and big dreams. I am not naive enough at this stage to think I can do that job but every player who has played for Manchester United and has become a coach or manager or has ambitions that way would want to have that opportunity one day. You never know what is around the corner. But Sir Alex has got many years left in him, don't worry about that.

"I have never hidden the fact I want to be a manager in the Premier League one day. The time will come. I don't doubt that.

"I've had offers and talks but at the moment I want to finish this season as we have two games left in the league, try and progress in the Europa League and then the target hopefully is to get Molde in the Champions League proper next season.

"Those are my short-term ambitions but long-term I can see myself wanting the opportunity in England or at a bigger club."
