Solskjaer to United: Former team-mates react
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's appointment as Manchester United's caretaker manager for the remainder of the 2018-19 season has proven to be a popular choice among his former team-mates.
The new interim boss spent 11 years under Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford as a player, winning the treble in 1998-99 and scoring 126 goals in 366 appearances.
Nicknamed 'The Baby-Faced Assassin', Solskjaer was a popular figure among supporters and, judging by the response on social media to his hiring, he was liked by team-mates too.
Here are some of those who wished Solskjaer luck in his new role.
David Beckham was part of that treble-winning side, while Rio Ferdinand won Premier League titles alongside Solskjaer.
