Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would love to have Cristiano Ronaldo back at Old Trafford as he’s currently “the best player in the world”.

The former Man Utd player and current manager was given the task of naming his dream signings from the 1999 treble-winning side by the ShivNadarFoundation.

Solskjaer couldn’t keep his answer down to one and even selected Ronaldo, who wasn’t part of that great side.

Solskjaer said: “That’s not fair, that’s very unfair. I can only have one?

“I would probably pick, can I pick two? They didn’t even play the final (in the Champions League against Bayern Munich). Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. I think I would pick those two.

“It’s unfair to Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the best player in the world of course.

“I played with him so I would like to have him in my team as well but Keane and Scholes, what an unbelievable midfield.”

On what he is looking for from new recruits, Solskjaer added: “I did feel that I was professional and did feel privileged to play for Manchester United.

“I wouldn’t be able to look at myself if I didn’t know I’d given everything for my team-mates and my manager.


“That’s what I also now look for in players that we sign or we bring up from the youth team. You have to have a good personality and that you are professional because one rotten apple in the basket will make the others rotten.

“So for me it’s about building a team that will reflect me and my coaching staff’s personalities and views. Of course there are standards because we want to win. We are in the business to win.

“But the first step to be a Man United player and person, you have to be humble enough to know you have to work hard. Never give in and always do your best, 100 per cent effort is required every day and don’t think you are better than you are.

“You still have to play with that confidence at the same time. It’s a fine balance but that is what is going to make the difference when we want to get to the championship again that we want to win.”
