Norwegian remains hopeful of Old Trafford job

Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to return to Old Trafford as manager one day.

The 39-year-old Norwegian spent more than a decade with the Red Devils as a player, then went on to manage their reserves.

And Solskjaer, now winning admirers as coach of Molde, believes he has enough in common with Sir Alex Ferguson to suggest he can step into the 71-year-old's shoes when he finally retires.

He told Marca: "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 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 goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has told Jose Mourinho to forget about succeeding Ferguson.

The former Chelsea boss, whose Real Madrid side take on United in the Champions League tomorrow, is widely expected to return to England next season.

But Schmeichel told El Mundo: "He will not be the successor. I don't think the club would be happy with everything Mourinho brings with him.

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

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
