'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Nou Camp Hero Wants Red Era!

We haven't even won the Champions League yet - but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already talking about winning it again and again and again.

Ole, the hero of 1999, is working as a coach at United now as you probably know. He revealed he thought they would win the European Cup several times - but their failure should be put right by the current crop.

'This will hopefully be the start of something more than we achieved,' he says.

'The 1999 team achieved it once. It was a fantastic feeling. The memories of that night stick with you forever. I wanted to experience more of them and believed we could. Now nine years have passed before the club could get back to a final.

And Solskjaer himself once admitted his greatest regret was missing a great chance in Leverkusen in the dying minutes of the 2002 semi-final second leg thus missing out on a place in the final even that was held at Glasgow and where Fergie wanted to get at all costs.

'This side can win it and hopefully start something bigger," Ole told the Manchester Evening News.

"You want the players to get the feeling that this is where we want to be every year. Hopefully it will inspire them and motivate them to believe what they really can achieve because I believe this team and these players can achieve a lot more."

"If you give Cristiano and Wayne, for instance, the taste of what it's like to win the Champions League, they will have the impetus to win it again and again.

'I think this team could go on to win more Champions Leagues than us in 1999 because of the talent and the age of the players."
