“Where Would You Like The Statue?” Gary Neville Produces Brilliant Interview With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer In Wake Of Manchester United’s Historic Triumph
Red Nev could barely contain his delight with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the aftermath of Manchester United’s Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes.
Could the Baby-Faced Assassin bring Manchester United’s fourth European trophy? Who knows, right now, who cares? Red Devils everywhere are just bathing in the warm soothing glow of a historic night in the France capital, a 3-1 win sealing passage into the Quarter-Finals of the competition.
There’s no bigger fan than Gary Neville, the legendary right-back, who interviewed Solskjaer with the look of a man who wants to have the Norwegian’s babies.
The brilliant interview between two old mates - memorably part of the 1999 Treble-winning side - is available for you to watch below.
Solskjaer has now registered an amazing 82% win rate as Man Utd boss. Since his appointment in mid-December, he has led Utd to 14 wins in 17 games, a single defeat consigned to meagre memory with that 2-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain all now for nought for Les Parisiens.
Neville immediately asked him; “Three very quick questions, how long would you like on your contract? What would your salary like to be? And where would you like the statue?”
Solskjaer took the comment well and replied: “Fantastic night, eh? I’m just going to do my best until the summer, see what the club decides.”
Very diplomatic from the Norwegian who has deftly deflected questions about his future.
“They’ve only got one decision to make haven’t they?” asked Neville.
Humorously, the interview concluded with Neville pulling Ole in for a hug, and the gaffer retorting that he was thankful it wasn’t a Scholes-esque snog!
