"And I think he was the best manager in the world, in the history of football". "We can talk about Harry Kane and his class, and I'm sure Marcus as well". He's got the potential to get up there.
"We are not going to get as many chances to attack against these as we had before so when we have the ball, we have to be ready to play well with it". He's a great link player and he's been brought up here. The Premier League clash will also see Solskjaer go up against Mauricio Pochettino, the favourite to land the United manager's job permanently in the summer.
Solskjaer has endeared himself to supporters by getting this team playing forwards and with aggression once more, a strategy which allowed for Man United to claim five wins against five opponents they should beat quite easily.More news: Gary Kubiak will not be Broncos offensive coordinator, sources say
Asked what qualities had enabled Pochettino to do so well at Spurs, Solskajer said: "I can't really comment because I've been sat on the outside too much".
"I remember him when he scored the second goal in injury time and how I shouted the goal of Manchester United, that was unbelievable".
Alex Ferguson's return to Manchester United's training ground has been massive for his old club, according to the man tipped to take over at Old Trafford next season. From the outside, he looks like that anyway.More news: Excessive body fat around the middle linked to smaller brain, study says
"The game's he's played already, you would expect the club to win". I have good memories of him.
Solskjaer said he had not had any further dialogue with United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over his position and whether he is in the frame for the permanent role.
"I have good memories because I remember when he scored after 90 minutes at the Camp Nou, I was with Tony Jimenez, my goalkeeping coach - we were there at the Camp Nou in 1999", Pochettino said.More news: The cosmic Drama: When Black holes rip stars
The Denmark midfielder's future remains uncertain with 18 months left on his contract, but Pochettino said: "We hope that he can be here for a long time". We said: 'Wow, incredible game, now injury time.' And then, when Solskjaer scored, we were shouting, celebrating, I don't know why. I think the boys enjoyed it, we put a few principles down and I know they worked hard and I think they enjoy working hard as well.
