Ole Gunnar Solskajer has backed Paul Scholes into management.
Scholes was a relatively quiet guy during his playing days. He did his job quietly and went about being the fantastic player that he was. However, his entry into pundit life has seen Scholes open up a lot more and he is going about criticizing players and managers as a part of his job. The current United boss and Paul Scholes’ former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not taken to it lightly.
However, he has also added that he think Scholes would make a fantastic manager as players would love to listen to a former player with so much knowledge of the game.
“It’s easier to speak loudly when you’re not in a job yourself,” Solskjaer said. “That will be great if Scholesy gets a job. I think he’s someone that you’d want to learn from.”
Solskajer has also been praised by another Manchester United duo, the Neville brothers; Gary and Phil. “They’re not my mates, but I played with them so many years,” Solskjaer said in response to the praise. “I’m just doing my bit to (do what) I feel I could help the team and club here.”
