Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given a reminder to Alan Shearer about his lack of FA Cup medals.
The Manchester United manager reminded the Newcastle legend turned football pundit about the fact through a friendly banter.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has poked at Newcastle United legend turned football expert Alan Shearer reminding him about his lack of FA Cup medals. The former United striker spoke about the 1999 FA Cup final which the Magpies lost to Manchester United. The Red Devils won the treble in the same year.
While being interviewed by BBC after Manchester United’s 0-2 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup, the interim manager reminded Shearer about the incident. He said, “The league will, of course, be important to us but a trophy would be fantastic to end up with.”
He added, “The FA Cup is one of the best trophies you can win. I played in 1999 and I think Alan, you also played!”
Answering to his friendly dig, the former England international said, “Thanks Ole I was having a great night until then!” Host Gary Linekar and studio guests Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Phil Neville also joined in the laughter as Linekar ended the show with a subtle dig at Shearer as by saying, “Thanks very much for reminding us that Alan Shearer never won the FA Cup.”
