OLE Gunnar Solskjaer says he would offer his old friend Roy Keane a job tomorrow if he was a club chairman.

The Molde manager, who is in Ireland for tonight's Champions League tie with Sligo Rovers, still speaks to the Corkman regularly and remains a massive fan.

Keane's career in the dugout has stalled after a poor stint at Ipswich and it is understood that he has mixed feelings on returning to management in the near future. Solskjaer is surprised that clubs have not been enquiring.

"I still speak to Roy," he said. "We discuss football. If I was a chairman, I'd be the first one to call him. I'm probably his biggest admirer.

"Will he return? If he wants to, yeah. He can answer himself. I know Roy doesn't want me to answer for him."

Manchester United remains close to the Norwegian's heart and he also gave his backing to Alex Ferguson's replacement, David Moyes, speaking in terms of 'we' when discussing his appointment.

"I was shocked (when Ferguson) retired but now we've got a new manager, we've got to support him. I'm really looking forward to seeing what team he builds.

"If Ferguson thought he was the next manager, it's the right decision.

"People have to back him up and get behind him if we start well or if we start not so well. The first five games are tough and it can go either way but he won't be judged on the first five."
