Yorke played with Solskjaer between 1998 and 2002, alongside the likes of Roy Keane, Peter Schmeichel, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs.
"It's a fantastic day for the club", Rooney, who had watched the match from the BT Sport studio, said. "And I think that Ole Gunnar can do that".
When it comes to Newcastle United, Robbie Savage only needs two words to sum up where the club is at, a few days before Christmas 2005. Tuesday morning when you get a phone call, of course you say yes without thinking.

"There are so many different personalities". He's a likeable guy and a very good coach and you suspect Sir Alex Ferguson might have been asked for his advice.
He also seems to be a loyal guy and if Ed Woodward has problems luring him away from Tottenham, I'd see the sense in giving the job to Ryan Giggs.
