🔴 Solskjaer on what he taught Ronaldo and Rooney as youngsters

Manchester United's manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed to have trained Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney a special move to open defenders.

Solskjaer was a senior player in Sir Alex Ferguson's team when the likes of Ronaldo and Rooney came in as youngsters at Old Trafford.

During a chat to celebrate his 25-year anniversary with the club, Ole revealed his special moments with the club's former cult heroes.

'“Every time when Wayne or Cristiano shifted the ball to the side and put it back through the legs of the defender, and the goalkeeper’s just stranded, I used to nudge my kids and say, 'Your dad’s taught them that!'" the Norwegian told United's media.

For now, Solskjaer is preparing his team towards the English Premier League opener at home to Leeds United on Saturday 14 August.
