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.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training



Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
