Solskjaer: I Want To Manage United

Manchester United’s legendary ‘Baby-faced Assassin’, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, dreams of replacing Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford hot-seat.

United manager Fergie is clinging to his post as he ages, and is still producing championship teams in spite of his advancing years.

There is constant speculation as to who could replace him, and Solskjaer has thrown his hat into the ring.

Solksjaer is making waves as a manger in Norway, where he led his unfancied boyhood club, Molde, to their first ever league title last season.

He has admitted that his ambition stretches further than the Norwegian league however, and that he would love a return to the Theatre of Dreams as manager of England’s most successful league team.

"Maybe it sounds stupid but my dream is to manage United. But I am not saying it is going to happen,” Solskjaer told Marca.

"I worked with Alex Ferguson for 15 seasons as a player and then as 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."

Meanwhile, former United ‘keeper, Peter Schmeichel, has warned another of the potential candidates to replace Fergie- Jose Mourinho- that he will never get the manager’s job at Old Trafford.

There is a growing consensus that Mourinho’s antics and sometimes dour brand of football will never gel with United’s ethos.

And great Dane Schmeichel agrees.

 "He will not be the successor. I don't think the club would be happy with everything Mourinho brings with him,” Schmeichel said of Mou to El Mundo.

"He's a great candidate for his qualities as a manager but the club doesn't want all the things that come with him."
