New Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he will draw from the teachings of legendary Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson , and is confident he can handle the egos of the club ’ s top stars , Goal reports .

The 45- year- old was appointed to a temporary role at the club on Wednesday following the sacking of Jose Mourinho on Tuesday.

He finds the club sixth in the Premier League, nine points behind the top four , and in grave danger of missing out on the Champions League next season.

The Norwegian turned out at Old Trafford as a player for 11 years during their most successful era under Ferguson and netted the decisive goal in the 1999 European Cup final.

The Scot ’ s man - management skills were considered his major strength and Solskjaer says he has learned from it.
Meanwhile, United ’ s campaign to date has been soured by reports of internal conflict , with Mourinho and World Cup -winning midfielder Paul Pogba embroiled in persistent sniping.

Indeed, the 25-year - old was regularly found on the bench in recent weeks and did not even take to the field during last weekend’ s 3-1 defeat against Liverpool, which proved Mourinho’ sswansong .

Solskjaer, by contrast , became a fans’ favourite at Old Trafford due to his loyalty to the club , despite often being reduced to the role of super - sub.

“ My job is to help the players and make them grasp the opportunity now because they all want to be a part of Man Utd and I ’ m going to be here to help them of course , help the team, ” he told the media.

“ It ’ s down to man -management . I had the best manager as a player and as a coach to learn how he dealt with people. It ’ s about communication .

“ Of course , I ’ ll sit down and speak to the ones who are not playing, what I expect from them . When you ’ re at Man Utd there are a set of demands and standards we set and one of them to be a team player, and I don’ t think anyone has been on the bench more than me!”
Ferguson ’ s management style is one that Solskjaer says runs through his ethos.

“ He ’ s influenced me with everything, the way he ’ s dealt with people the way he was manager of the club , how he kept 25 international players happy and hungry wanting to improve but also the staff in and around the place , ” he said .

“ He ’ s been my mentor but I didn ’ t understand early on he’ d be my mentor . Towards the last, maybe the injury in 2003, I was making all the notes what he did in certain situations and I ’ ve already been in touch with him , there ’ s no one to get better advice from. ”

Sir Alex spent 27 years in charge at Man Utd , but emulating that is not immediately in the thoughts of the new man in the hot seat .

“ When you get a job like this and you sign for six months , you say : ‘ I ’ m happy to help out. ’ My job now is to do as well as I can and move the club forward as well as I can, ” he said .

“ I understand that there are so many managers that would love to be at this club . I am one of them . Staying longer is not something that we have talked about . They are going to do their process for the next six months . ”

Settling in, however , is not proving to be a problem.

He added , “ I ’ ve been here as a player, 11 years, coach three and a half years , the best part of 15 years of my life – it’ s a third of my life, ” he said . “ Nicky Butt was the first lad I met … You ’ re excited but it feels like home. ”

His first challenge will come against Cardiff City , the only British club that he has previously managed, in the Premier League on Saturday.
