Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov has spoken of his dream of taking over the reins at Manchester United one day after being inspired by current interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The narrow 2-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion last time out handed the Red Devils their seventh win on the trot in all competitions since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the managerial berth from Jose Mourinho.

DimitarBerbatov wants other former United greats to take the cue from Ole and go ahead to manage the three-time European champions one day.

Speaking to talkSPORThost Jim White, Berbatov revealed he will like to become a football manager one day. He explains how delighted he will like to manage his former employers Manchester United in the future and praised the club for giving Ole the chance to hone his managerial skills.

Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker boss following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December but his heroics at the club has put him in the running for the permanent job at Old Trafford.

The Norwegian has maintained a 100 percent start to his Man United stint, winning all seven games including an impressive 1-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur.

Speaking further, Berbatov praised Ole for the work he has put in since his appointment stating that he will like to see the Norwegian get the permanent job when the big decision is made in the summer.

Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino remains the leading candidate for the Man United with Paul Scholes claiming the Argentine is right for the club as he “ticks all the boxes”.

Berbatov however, will like to see Poch remain at Tottenham as he feels he is doing a very good job at the club.

“For me personally, I want Poch to stay there and Solskjaer to remain at Man United”, he concluded.
