Pep Guardiola feels Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s previous acquaintance will help him in guiding the team.
Solskjaer has been given the charge to lead the team for the remainder of the season following the ouster of Jose Mourinho. This is the Norwegian’s third spell at the club having spent two separate spells as player and manager of the Reserves side.
The 45 year did have an unsuccessful managerial attempt with Cardiff City previously and would be determined to prove his credentials as a manager once again. It won’t be an easy task but the former United forward does have the potential to prove his doubters wrong.
He has done wonders with Molde in Norway and would be hoping to replicate the same at the Old Trafford. Guardiola also has backed the United boss to succeed. “When a manager like Solskjaer has this chance [it is] because the club decide he can do it. It happened in my case quite similar, we were young and had the opportunity so try to do out best.
“Of course they are different jobs, so you cannot compare football player as a manager. I wish him all the best.
“The fact I was there since 13 years old, you know the club that is an advantage for sure. Knowing the people and knowing how it works everything there is important.
“Something positive comes from the fact you were there in the past and you know many things of the club.”
