''Open Me Up, I Bleed Red'' - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Has Always Wanted The Manchester United Job
New Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer achieved a dream when he was appointed to replace Jose Mourinho today.
A legend amongst the United fans, Solskjaer has been handed the reins until the end of the season.
He may have achieved success back in Norway with Molde but his previous experience of Premier League management at Cardiff didn't go well.
Yet he's a man who has always made no secret of his everlasting love for United, as this interview from 2012 proves.
"I'm always going to be a massive Manchester United supporter," he said. "I'm a massive red. You can cut me open and I bleed red. I think it's any young kid's dream is to play at Manchester United and when you become too old to play the next best thing is to become a manager."
Speaking of his time working with Sir Alex Ferguson, he explained: "There were not many times when we lost two in a row. We lost against Newcastle and Southampton and also a Turkish team - three or four games on the bounce. But he said that if we had anything about us we'd put all the mortgages we had because there would be never be better odds of us winning. We weren't allowed to bet of course but we won the league by a mile. That psychology was one of his strengths."
Mike Phelan will join the Norwegian at Old Trafford as first team coach as the club prepares for this weekend's Premier League game at Solskjaer's former club Cardiff.
