Fergie has management touch - Solskjaer

Published Add your comment

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not surprised in the least by the number of Sir Alex Ferguson´s pupils who have entered the management game.

Four of Ferguson´s 19 rival Premier League bosses enjoyed the best years of their playing careers at Manchester United, with plenty of others underneath and Solskjaer is the latest to try his luck - as the Red Devils reserve team manager - a role Ferguson personally allocated to the Norwegian.

"I am not surprised at the number of ex-Alex Ferguson players who have gone on to be managers," he said. "Something about the gaffer rubs off on you. He knows his players. He signs players he sees a little bit of himself in. They have the right personality."
