And Solksjaer has hailed Ferguson's huge influence on him as a player and a coach when he returned to Old Trafford this month.

The 45-year-old is determined to bring back the attacking style of play and continue the club's traditions of bringing young players from the academy.

Solskjaer said: “I have been in touch with the gaffer quite a bit.

“I don't know what input he had but when I got the call, of course, I texted the boss.

“I am going to enjoy a nice cup of tea back at his house and sit down to discuss a few ideas. There's no-one better to get advice from.

“I had the best teacher. The boss is and will always be the best, so my management involves around what I learned from him.”
