Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Interview With Gary Neville Proves He’s Most Humble Guy In Football
Your team has just scored a last minute goal to reach the Champions League quarter-final. Your players are singing your name in the dressing room. Your fans want you to take the job permanently. It's what dreams are made of.
Despite all of these things, Manchester United's caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was humble as ever after his side's historic comeback against Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain at the Parc des Princes.
In a wonderful post-match interview with former teammate Gary Neville - who may I add needs to be involved in every interview on Sky Sports from now on - Solskjaer was asked three questions:
"Ole Gunnar, I've got three very questions for you: How long you would you like on your contract? What would your salary be, and where would you like the statue?"
Solskjaer's response is why he will go on to become one of the all-time greats. Just check it out above.
Neville went on to say that he expects Solskjaer to be named the permanent manager of Manchester United this month after a spectacular spell in charge at Old Trafford.
In an interview with Norwegian station TV2, the former defender was asked if his former teammate will get the job:
"He will. He'll probably be the king of Norway, the president of Norway and the prime minister of Norway as well." he said.

"I can't believe what's happened. I thought, when he first came in, it was just to reconnect the club with the fans, the players and get everyone happy.
"He's a safe pair of hands, someone that the club could rely upon to give good information to the boardroom about what the players are like. And then they would appoint the best manager in the world.
"Ole's results are Premier League title-winning results. The form guide says it all. The performances are very good, the fans are loving it, it's been a sensational three months.
"I think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will get given the job. The right time for me was always mid-March to the end of March, and that's when the international break is.
"I'll be surprised if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not awarded the job in the international break in the next couple of weeks."
