The Daily Express says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is targeting a sensational return to Old Trafford, as manager of United. The Norwegian has agreed to take up the managerial post at former club, Molde FK, and sees the move as the first step to achieving his dream of managing the Reds. Solskjaer said: “Anyone who has played for United would love to manage the club but as Sir Alex Ferguson told me, you need experience and this is the first step for me. Maybe in 25 years, maybe that’s the time for me!”
Elsewhere, Sir Alex’s comments on Manchester City and the derby are widely reported today, with most papers focusing on the gaffer's view on the ‘welcome to Manchester’ poster campaign rather than his admiration for Blues boss Roberto Mancini.
