David Beckham's overriding memory of playing alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is simple - goals.
The LA Galaxy midfielder took time out to pay tribute to the Norwegian in an exclusive interview with MUTV.
Beckham had hoped to be part of the celebrations at Solskjaer's testimonial on Saturday at Old Trafford, but commitments with his current side have prevented him from making the trip to Manchester.
The England international played alongside United's former striker for six years and rates him as one of the best players he's ever worked with.
"I remember meeting him for the first time and thinking how young he looked - he had such a baby face!" recalls Beckham.
"As soon as he started training you could see straight away that he had what it took to become a Manchester United player, a great Manchester United player in fact, even at such a young age.
"He was one of those players that whenever he got the ball he did something with it – that was obvious from the moment he stepped on the training pitch."
Solskjaer went on to net 126 goals in 326 games, including that goal in Barcelona in 1999, numerous other late winners and two memorable quadruples against Nottingham Forest and Everton.
"Obviously the goal in Barcelona is one of my favourite Ole memories," says Beckham. "But I’ll never forget when he came on as a sub at Nottingham Forest and within ten minutes had scored four goals. That just sums Ole up as a player, he was all about scoring goals.
"We appreciated everything about him though, not just his goals. He always worked hard on and off the field and the fact that he was a nice guy on top of all that was brilliant. He’s a great player and a great person."
