Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock believes the stage is set for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the new Manchester United caretaker manager now has the best chance to stamp his authority at the Old Trafford.
The Norwegian has been handed the reign following the ouster of Jose Mourinho and will be up against his former when United travel to Cardiff to take on his old club.
Solskjaer had a harrowing experience at the Cardiff City stadium during his brief eight months stay in the Wales capital and he would be hoping to rectify his mistakes in this new journey.
The Red Devils are currently hovering around the top five although they have a pretty huge gap to fill, a win in this match would ease the pressure off him.
Warnock said, “I think it needed somebody who’s been there. He’s a legend really.
“Four or five names came to my mind, maybe Steve Bruce or Ryan Giggs. It’s a different type of management, with (Mike) Phelan coming back in, Sir Alex’s man. With the players they’ve got, young lads, I bet he can’t believe his luck.
“I think it’s the best job Ole will have in his life, because you can’t lose! Hold the fort until the end of the season, if he does well he’ll get a couple of years. If he doesn’t, he’ll go back to where he was enjoying [managing] anyhow.”
