Having won back to back titles with Molde, a club that had never won the league before, in his first two years of management, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is regularly linked with jobs in the Premier League. It goes without saying that United fans would love for him to be good enough to manage our club one day. However, whilst Solskjaer would love the job, he reckons that Ryan Giggs might get it once Sir Alex Ferguson retires.
“He’s looking at that United job for himself, Giggsy. He’s got top potential,” he said. “Giggsy is going to play another year, but I’d say he’s got his eyes and ears open more to what the manager is doing. You have to dream big – if you don’t dream big, you won’t make it. So let’s just wait and see what happens. Giggsy will know that. He’s got real potential and he will be looking at what the manager is doing. I’ve said it before that my dream is to manage Man United. That’s tongue in cheek, really, because it’s a massive job – the biggest job in the world.”
