Giggs hoping to succeed Ferguson at Manchester United, reveals Solskjaer

The midfielder has agreed to play on for yet another season, but his former team-mate feels the Welshman will want to continue his legacy with the club in a managerial capacity
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs is eager to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson as manager at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer, who manages Tippeligaen side Molde, spent 11 years with United and has been linked with a future managerial position at the club once Sir Alex calls time on his reign.

But, the Norwegian believes his former team-mate is the one most likely to take over from the Scot.

He told The Daily Mirror: "He's looking at that United job for himself, Giggs. He’s got top potential.

"Giggs is going to play another year, but I’d say he’s got his eyes and ears open more to what the manager is doing."

Solskjaer - who has been linked with Aston Villa and Blackburn in the past - admits he would love to take charge at Old Trafford but was quick to endorse Giggs as Sir Alex's immediate replacement.

"You have to dream big - if you don't dream big, you won't make it," he added. "So let's just wait and see what happens.

"Giggs will know that. He's got real potential and he will be looking at what the manager is doing.

"I've said it before that my dream is to manage Man United. That's tongue in cheek, really, because it's a massive job - the biggest job in the world."
