Solskjaer praises Man Utd boss Ferguson for giving kids chance

Manchester United reserves coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised manager Sir Alex Ferguson for the way he gives chances to the club's young players.

Solskjaer told manutd.com: "One of the most satisfying parts of the job is when you see the young lads making up the step up to the first team - it was brilliant for so many of them to make their debuts last season. They're great players and they have their careers ahead of them. When they play with better players in the first team, they're ready to take the step.

"The gaffer recognises that they're ready and they can be thrown in at the deep end. We train them every day to be good professionals and they know every day is a chance to impress me and Warren [Joyce] and that we then tell the gaffer who's ready.

"The players are great, a joy to work with every day. Me and Warren have been trying to show them how to be good professionals and they responded really well all season."
