The names in Ole's five-a-side team are all iconic

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named his dream five-a-side team and, unsurprisingly, it features some of the greatest players in our club’s illustrious history.

The boss was asked to pick his small-sided team by Nigerian supporter Sharon HM during the first part of his latest fan Q&A, which is available to watch now below. 

There was one important rule to Sharon's question: Ole must choose between players he shared a dressing room with throughout his iconic playing career at Old Trafford – which isn’t a bad list to draw from!

 “Hi Sharon, good question, takes me back a few years this,” starts Solskjaer.  

“I would probably have… if I have to pick myself then I’d score the goals so I’d don’t have to take too many of the strikers.

 “I’d like to have Becks, Scholesy, Giggs. So there we are one, two, three and me.

“We need a keeper as well, so that’s maybe too many attacking players. 

“Jaap Stam, defensively. He’s a defence alone, and goalkeeper would probably be Edwin van der Sar with his ball skills.

“So, it’s Edwin, Jaap, Becks on the right, Giggsy on the left and me up front. Maybe a 1-2-1 formation? 

“That’s a bit unfair on Scholes and Keane and Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, but that’s probably the team I’d pick.”
