Ole sees more of him now in his United team

The boss admitted: “Football has changed. Some players get affected by: I’ve made money, I’ve made this, I’ve won a trophy or I can sit back and relax.”

When Ole began his playing career at United, he was part of a squad that was full of stars with strong mentalities, such as Roy Keane, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, with Sir Alex Ferguson also in the dug-out as manager. When the Norwegian walked through the door in 1996, the young Solskjaer soon realised that football was a lot more than just doing as well as you can.

“I had the best of the lot as a manager. If you win something, you move on. You want to win the next one, you want to be better, you want to win the training session the day after, you want to win playing cards.”
