New Manchester United interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær says he's already sought the advice of legendary former boss Sir Alex Ferguson after succeeding José Mourinho this week.
The Norwegian's first game in charge of the club he scored 126 times for in 11 years will be at the home of the other British club he has managed, Cardiff City, on Saturday.
Speaking to the press for the first time since being appointed on Wednesday, Solskjær said instilling his principles in United's players will be more important than results – in the short term at least.
In order to do this he will be calling upon man management skills learnt while he was a player under Ferguson.
“He’s influenced me with everything to be fair," Solskjær said.
"The way he dealt with people, the way he was the manager of the club, how he kept 25 international players happy and hungry and wanting to improve, but also the staff in and around the place.
"He’s been my mentor, and of course, I’ve already been in touch with him because there’s no one better to get advice from.”
He continued: “It’s about getting every player to do their very best, it’s about speaking to them but of course it’s on the training ground, getting your philosophy through, your principles and how you want to play.
“No matter what team you’re coaching and what players you’re coaching, they all want to have a picture of how you want to play, but these are quality, quality players, so it will be easier to get these players expressing themselves.
"Good players are easier to coach than bad players. We play at Manchester United and you play without fear, you play with courage, you go out and express yourselves, take risks."
United are sixth ahead of Saturday's game and trail fifth-placed Arsenal by eight points. Promoted Cardiff are 16th, two points above the relegation zone.
