Solskjaer Hails Cardiff Players for 'Perfect' Start

MOST COMMENTED

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed Cardiff City’s players for producing the “perfect start” to his reign as head coach with a 2-1 come-from-behind win against Newcastle at St. James Park. Solskjaer, who often adopted the tag of ‘super-sub’ in his time at Manchester United, was delighted that substitutes Craig Noone and Frazier Campbell secured the win for his team after Newcastle’s Papiss Cisse opened the scoring in the first half.

After the game, the former United and Norway striker refused to take credit for the win: "It is not about me, it's a perfect start for the new times. The lads had a lot to deal with and it's nice to start with a Cup win." He added:  "When you turn a game around, it is fantastic. The best feeling you have in games is when you really deserve it and they did today.”

Asked if the tag super-sub annoyed him during his time at Old Trafford, Solskjaer said, “No. I was part of a great team, and I enjoyed doing my best whenever I got my chance and that's the message to the players. Come on and make an impact.” He said that mentality showed in the players’ performance. "It pleased me a lot when we went 1-0 down that they showed character and the way they dug themselves back into the game. We didn't stop playing, and then of course there were two fantastic pieces of skill, a great header from Frazier and the goal from Noone was something else."
