New Man Utd coach Solskjaer has management ambitions

Manchester United hero Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he has management ambitions as he prepares to begin his new job as reserve-team coach.

"I do have ambitions to go into management. I want to stay in the game and I want to stay at this club," he said.

"But it is just about taking one step at a time. I was very good at that as a player and I don't want to jump into a job before I am ready for it."

Solskjaer feels the reserve team job, where he will be assisted by Warren Joyce following his return from Royal Antwerp, should suit him perfectly and, using Roy Keane as an example, denies it has come too early.

"I am not really surprised - I thought that maybe the reserve team was somewhere the club would like to put me," he said.

"It is the perfect job for me because I know the kids well and Roy Keane didn't finish that much before me and look at what he is doing at Sunderland."
