Hughes: Ole's place in history secure

Former Manchester United striker Mark Hughes has paid tribute to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who announced his retirement on Tuesday due to injury.

Hughes, now manager of Blackburn, said: 'Ole is guaranteed a place in United's history and football's history with his goal in the European Cup final (in 1999).

'But he brought so much more to Manchester United. He had a huge influence over many years.

'I met him on many occasions. He is a true professional, a very humble man but a very successful one.

'Ole has many qualities and I'm sure that will help him going into another period in his life.'

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger also revealed his admiration for Solskjaer.

The Frenchman said: 'He played with fantastic efficiency. Maybe he was not a star player because was not a man for the media. But in a quiet way he was one of the most efficient players at Manchester United.

'If you look at his record in terms of goals to games, you won't find many better players. For (Sir Alex) Ferguson to say he's the best substitute is a real compliment for the manager, not for the player.

'Every manager knows that you can only win big games with a top bench. In 1999 Man Utd won everything and if you look that year you'll see that (Teddy) Sheringham and Solskjaer were maybe the two most important players for Utd. And most of the time they came off the bench.'
