But who are the best footballers the Norwegian PLAYED WITH during his days at Manchester United?
Solskjaer - who claimed six Premier League titles, two FA Cups and netted the winner in the 1999 Champions League final whilst on the Red Devils' books - revealed all to The Fantasy Football Club by picking his #One2Eleven.
So watch the video above or read the text below to discover who made Ole's army...
GOALKEEPER - Edwin van der Sar
OLE SAYS: There are two options as at the start of my career I had Peter Schmeichel and at the end of my career I had Edwin van der Sar. Peter was one of the best in the world, but I think I'd pick Edwin as the number one goalkeeper. When he came to United all the players got what we had waited for since Peter left.
RIGHT BACK - Gary Neville
OLE SAYS: It's got to be Gary; he was the best right-back by a mile. He was always consistent and always reliable. He's very opinionated, but I think he has a good opinion of football.
LEFT-BACK - Denis Irwin
OLE SAYS: I've got to pick Denis for his consistency and goals from penalties. I cannot recall seeing him miss a penalty and he scored from free-kicks as well before Becks [David Beckham] started taking them.
CENTRE-BACKS - Jaap Stam and Rio Ferdinand
OLE SAYS: Jaap was as big as a mountain, as wide as a house and as quick as a Ferrari. If you're doing one against ones and you face up to him, I can't recall ever going past him. I've got plenty of partners that could go with Jaap, but I'll pick Rio. He was the hardest player I ever played against; quick, strong, read the game and came out with the ball.
RIGHT WING - David Beckham
OLE SAYS: I've got to go with David. If you saw Becks put his head down and get his left arm up you knew he was going to cross it, so as a striker you just had to make a run. He did the "graveyard shifts" as the gaffer always used to say. He was up and down and in and out and with Gary behind him he was unstoppable.
LEFT WING - Ryan Giggs
OLE SAYS: I've got to complement Becks on the right with Giggsy on the left. There's nothing I can say that hasn't been said about Giggsy. One of my favourite goals at Old Trafford was when Giggsy played it in behind Sol Campbell and I brought it down and scored. He had so many assists for me and I had a good understanding with him. Giggsy, for me, is probably the best player that's ever played for Man United.
CENTRAL MIDFIELD - Roy Keane
OLE SAYS: I want to play 4-4-2 with two centre midfielders, so you've got to have two players in central midfield that are really complete. My first choice is my captain - and the one player I would pick over anyone if I could just pick one - and that's Roy. Me and Roy have become good friends; we shouted a lot at each other but because he shouted at me, I realised he had an affection for me. He wants me to do better because he knows I can do better. I learned a lot and I grew a lot and I think I became a more mature player after meeting Roy.
CENTRAL MIDFIELD - Paul Scholes
OLE SAYS: Alongside Roy I will pick Scholes, the little magician. He's a complete midfielder that cannot run, is not quick, cannot head, cannot jump, and isn't the fittest. We all know he can't tackle, either! I would have picked him every time if I was the England manager and as a nation you never really got the best out of one of your best players ever.
STRIKER - Eric Cantona
OLE SAYS: When I came to United there was The King and I've got to pick Cantona as one of my strikers. He was almost like a father figure, a coach on the pitch, and when he came into a room the whole room changed. That was the person he was. I still remember the last time he was a United player and we had a party all night because we'd just won the league and I went to London and on the way back I heard on the radio that Eric had retired without saying one word to us! We'd had a great party, a good time and he never mentioned it. That was Eric!
STRIKER - Ruud van Nistelrooy
OLE SAYS: I have to pick Ruud, as he was the best finisher I worked with. My philosophy as a striker when I played was to know what to do, practise what to do and then do it on the pitch by instinct - and Ruud was exactly the same. He was 100 per cent concentrated on just hitting that ball exactly right every time he had a chance.
