Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Names The Two Former Manchester United Players He'd Like In Current Squad
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has chosen two ex-teammates from Manchester United's famous treble-winning side when asked which former player he would add to the current squad.
The 47-year-old former striker, who made over 350 appearances for the club during an 11 year spell at Old Trafford, was quick to mention the ever-influential Roy Keane as his dream addition.
And Solskjaer said he would also "sneak Paul Scholes in the back door" alongside former captain Keane.
Speaking about his decision in an interview with ShivNadarFoundation, the Norwegian said: "That's not fair, that's very unfair. I can only have one?
"I would probably pick, can I pick two? They didn't even play the final [against Bayern Munich]. Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. I think I would pick those two.
"It's unfair to Cristiano Ronaldo who is the best player in the world of course. I played with him so I would like to have him in my team as well but Keane and Scholes, what an unbelievable midfield."

"I don't think we considered them being away because we were so confident in our own ability and of course the manager had a difficult decision to make because he was going to play with Jesper Blomqvist and Ryan Giggs in the same team.
"They used to play on the left, it's natural that those two came in and I think he did maybe a good decision bringing David Beckham in the middle. I think that says everything about how good a squad we were that we still could win it.
"If I choose one I would say Roy Keane because of all the influence that he gave, and how he influenced the whole team.
"I would pick Roy but I'd sneak Paul Scholes in the back door so we can get two."
