Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named Cristiano Ronaldo and Roy Keane as two Manchester United legends he would want in his current side.

Solskjaer spent nine years playing alongside former United captain Keane and the pair won five Premier League titles together and were both a key part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s Treble-winning side in 1999.

Ronaldo joined Manchester United towards the end of Solskjaer’s Manchester United playing career and they won the Premier League title together in the Norwegian’s final campaign at Old Trafford.

Asked by Manchester United fans which United legend he would want in his current team, Solskjaer replied: “There are a few players I’ve played with that I’d love to have in my team, of course.

“I’d love the player Roy Keane, I’m not sure if I could manage him though!

“I’d sign him every day of the week, Roy was so influential but then again, I played with Cristiano and he’s been the best player in the world alongside [Lionel] Messi for the past 10 to 15 years now, so Cristiano.

“You’d take him in your team, for sure.”
