"Like me, he [Solskjær] is an ex-football player for a big club and he has got the break that he needed," he said.

"I am curious because I have been part of Manchester United, and someday I want to be a manager. I'll need that break too at some point.

"There are only a few 'chosen ones' who start off at big clubs -- Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane both had lesser roles at Barcelona and Real Madrid before taking the reins to great success -- but Ole has earned this opportunity through his good work in Norway with Molde and coaching at United.

"Who knows, one day it might be me in charge at Old Trafford. I am doing my badges now and my ambitions are high."

"My heart is in the Premier League. I can honestly say that when you've played there your heart stays there even if you are physically elsewhere.

"This is my main goal, but you never know you may need to start somewhere small and work your way up.

"As I said, my ambition is big -- am doing my badges, visiting clubs to see how they work, updating my knowledge constantly. When the time is right the moment will show itself."
