Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals he has been taking managerial tips from Roy Keane
Cardiff manager has struggled in the English top flight
Monday 03 March 2014
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was endured a painful start to his managerial career in England, having won one out of eight league matches, but has he been taking the wrong advice?
The 41-year-old has revealed he has been talking regularly to his former captain at Manchester United, Roy Keane, a fine player - but he lost nearly double the amount of matches he had won as manager in the Premier League.
Keane, now the Republic of Ireland assistant manager, had 53 Premier League matches in charge of Sunderland between August 2007 and November 2008, winning 15, drawing 9 and losing 29.
"Roy has been a great help to me in my time at Cardiff," Solskjaer said. "Everybody I talk to tells me to be myself - and don't ever change.
"I don't feel alone in this situation because I have great staff around me and we are working through this together.
"I feel equipped for this job and would not have taken it if I did not feel I was ready."
On a positive note, Solskjaer also says he has been talking to Sir Alex Ferguson, and he didn't do too badly, did he?
