Ole Wants United Job!
Although we suspect that Sir Alex Ferguson will soldier on for a few years yet, and why shouldn`t he, we`re never going to put an end to the speculation as to who might take over from the most successful manager this game of ours has known.
However, whilst the big-guns of European football are touted as possible contenders, a United old boy and a legend at that has implied that he`d love to take the job on.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, a hero of our Champions League triumph against Bayern Munich, has spoken about managing the club he served with distinction, commenting,
"Maybe it sounds stupid but my dream is to manage United. But I am not saying it is going to happen."
"I worked with Alex Ferguson for 15 seasons as a player and then as a reserve team coach."
"His methodology has influenced my philosophy. Almost everything I know I learnt from Sir Alex."
"Both of us believe in ourselves, we always want to win and we put our faith in youngsters and work hard."
Having already taken his Norwegian side, Molde, to back-to-back titles, could the thirty-nine year-old get his wish one day?
