Ole Gunnar Solskjaer selects two former Man Utd stars he’d like in current squad

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Roy Keane is the one former Manchester team-mate he'd have in his current side – and would also "sneak Paul Scholes in the back door".

Solskjaer enjoyed a glittering playing spell with the Red Devils and is widely remembered for scoring the winning goal in the 1999 Champions League triumph.

Keane and Scholes were both suspended for the European win over Bayern Munich, but Solskjaer regards them as most influential players he played alongside.

And, referring to that encounter, Solskjaer has explained why the pair would feature in his current side.

"That's not fair, that's very unfair. I can only have one?," Solskjaer told ShivNavarFoundation.

"I would probably pick, can I pick two? They didn't even play the final [against Bayern Munich]. Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. I think I would pick those two.

"It's unfair to Cristiano Ronaldo who is the best player in the world of course. I played with him so I would like to have him in my team as well but Keane and Scholes, what an unbelievable midfield."

"I don't think we considered them being away because we were so confident in our own ability and of course the manager had a difficult decision to make because he was going to play with Jesper Blomqvist and Ryan Giggs in the same team.

"They used to play on the left, it's natural that those two came in and I think he did maybe a good decision bringing David Beckham in the middle. I think that says everything about how good a squad we were that we still could win it.

"If I choose one I would say Roy Keane because of all the influence that he gave, and how he influenced the whole team.

"I would pick Roy but I'd sneak Paul Scholes in the back door so we can get two."
