Teddy Sheringham has backed his former strike partner Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to win a trophy with Manchester United this season.

The two famously collaborated for the winning goal in 1999 Champions League final, as Sheringham flicked on a corner for Solskjaer to poke home to complete the famous comeback in Barcelona.

Since their playing careers ended, Solskjaer has gone on to become the manager at Old Trafford. But, now into his fourth season with the club, he is yet to win a trophy.

This summer he was able to sign Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo to bolster his squad and after four games they currently sit top of the Premier League on goal difference.

Sheringham was speaking at Maurice Newman’s annual charity Golf Day in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital at Stapleford Abbotts Golf Course, when he backed Solskjaer to win silverware with Man United - but admitted that it would be tough.

He said: “Ole has to win a trophy this season, without a shadow [of a doubt]. It’s no good being nearly or close and all that.

"The pressure is on him this year and he understands that, he knows what it’s all about to stay in a job at the top level. You’ve got to win things. I’m quite convinced they will win something.

“United are getting better. When you look at a football club, you look to see if there’s any progression. They’ve had a down period since Sir Alex left, it’s been troubled. But if you look at where they’ve finished [under Ole], they’re getting in finals and getting close, it looks better. Now is the time to win things, though. It makes it tough for him.”

Solskjaer's side return to action against West Ham on Sunday afternoon, following the shock Champions League defeat to Young Boys in midweek.
