Ole Gunnar Solskajaer is closing the gap on Pep Guardiola claims Eric Cantona.
The Norwegian manager is still waiting for his first trophy as United’s manager at Old Trafford.
Eric Cantona who played alongside Solskjaer believes he can follow Guardiola’s path to success given their similar playing experiences under leading managers.
“It’s important to win any kind of trophies,” Cantona told Sky Sports. “In the near future, I hope next year they [United] can win the league.
“Now they have tried to find somebody like Ole, like [Pep] Guardiola was a player when Johan Cruyff was the manager at Barcelona and he learned a lot with Cruyff. He became a great manager with the same kind of football philosophy.
“Ole was a player when Alex Ferguson was there. He learned a lot. Ole decided to become a manager and I think it’s great to have a manager who knows the identity of this club. He’s got the DNA of this club.
“I can’t wait for United to win the league again – it will be soon.”
