Current Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed what his first meeting with his former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who had not seen him play before signing him, was like.
The Norwegian joined the Red Devils from Molde in 1996, spending 11 years in the first team after being integrated into the senior squad.
Solskjaer, who has been United boss since last year, recently opened up about his arrival at the Old Trafford all those years ago, revealing that there was also some interest from Liverpool, before discussing his very first encounter with Ferguson.
"Were Liverpool and Bayern Munich in for me? Yes, (and) Cagliari, PSV and a couple of other teams," he told the Manchester club's official website.
"But I wouldn't change the history. There was only one choice. It was fantastic when the call came.
"The owners of Molde asked me to come to the office. 'We've got this offer – do you fancy it?' Yeah, okay. They were going to go on holiday the next couple of days.
"(Former United chairman) Martin Edwards was going to go on holiday as well, so we had to come in the next day. Their private jet was down by some fault, so they booked and rented another private jet just to fly me over.
"I was nervous (before meeting Ferguson), because you're afraid that you're going to say something daft and he's going to have a wrong first impression. I knew he'd not seen me play a game, so it was an important meeting for me.
"It was just me. We had fish and chips at Old Trafford, in the restaurant back there, and it was maybe half an hour or 45 minutes. He said: 'Use the first six months in the reserves, then after Christmas maybe we can integrate you into the first-team squad.'
"They were just negotiating the deal inside Old Trafford, and they were giving me a tour. The tour guide just asked me (why I was here), and I said 'I'm here to sign a contract!'
"He actually gave me his pen to sign the contract with! It was a proud moment for him as well, I think."
