Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping newly-appointed Manchester United boss Ryan Giggs can do his side a favour over the next couple of games.
Cardiff currently occupy 18th position in the Premier League, but could leapfrog Norwich in 17th if they beat Hull and other results go in their favour.
Giggs' first game as interim manager comes against Cardiff's relegation rivals, and then United face Sunderland the following week.
Solskjaer is hoping his former teammate can do him a favour. Speaking at his Friday press conference, he said: "I’ve spoke to Giggsy of course.
“I told him as a boy from Cardiff, he should do us a favour for the next two games.”
Solskjaer said he had also spoke to outgoing United boss, David Moyes, thanking him for allowing him to sign Wilfried Zaha and Fabio in the January transfer window.
Talking about Giggs' appointment, Solskjaer said he knew from his time in the dressing room with the Welshman that he would one day go on to be a great manager.
He explained that Giggs is a man that people will listen to. “I’ve seen he was going to be a very good coach or manager throughout his career," Solskjaer said.
"He chooses words very carefully.
"He doesn’t always speak everyday but when he speaks you listen.”
The Norweigan said he and Giggs had been on courses together earning their coaching qualifications.
Solskjaer believes Giggs has all the attributes to make it to the top as a manager.
“He commands respect," he said.
“Giggsy has all attributes to become top, top manager one day, definitely.”
