Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that the prospect of playing Championship football next season is difficult to take. The Bluebirds were relegated from the Premier League yesterday after suffering a 3-0 defeat away at Newcastle.
Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is glad he ignored Steve Bruce's advice to avoid a career in coaching.
The two former Manchester United favourites come face-to-face for the first time on Saturday in a match that's a big chance to bank three important points in the league relegation battle.
"I don't really know Brucey that well because he left before I came to United, but we've met a few times," said Solskjaer. "I remember he said to me a few years ago about management 'don't even think about it because it's too stressful'.
"But I enjoy it, I love it. You could have an easy life - it's not like you have to work because you've made your money - but that's not me."
Cardiff will once again be looking to another player with Manchester United connections, Wilfried Zaha, for inspiration this weekend.
The England winger made just two league appearances under Moyes before being sent to Cardiff and Solskjaer has been impressed with his reaction to the move.
"Wilf has had a period, probably for the first time, where he's not played regularly. There are two ways you can look at that - feel sorry for yourself and give up or reflect on what you need to do to get better. He's come in here really bright in training and took on board what we've said."
