Former Manchester United forward Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed his ambitions to become manager at Old Trafford.

The FK Molde manager spent three years in charge of the reserve side at Old Trafford after retirirement, and has since taken the reigns at his former club in Norway.

Solskjaer's ambitions are clear though, and a potential position in charge of the Red Devils is something that inspires the 67 cap international.

"I think if you ask any Manchester United player at any time of his career if you want to manage somewhere you want to manage United, because it's the best place to be," the 38-year-old told takSPORT.

"But to get there, to manage Manchester United, you need to go somewhere else and learn your trade so 15, 20 years from now maybe.

"I think if you ask any United player at any time of his career if you want to manage somewhere you want to manage Manchester United."


 

Solskjaer also spoke to the British radio station about the club-versus-country debate, and noted how some of the United players have prolonged their careers at domestic level because of their decisions.

"Wes Brown and Dimitar Berbatov are among a host of players who have been criticised for prematurely calling time on their international careers this year.

"When you get players who get to a certain age they start thinking about where the priorities should lie and I think that's when your responsibility towards your club is a big thing.

"I think Scholesy, Giggsy they've done fantastic after retiring from international football so we can't complain about that."
