Solskjaer begins Cardiff quest with win over Newcastle.

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked about transfer targets after Cardiff's historic FA Cup win at Newcastle, he was understandably keen to focus on the day's achievements rather than speculate about the future.

But after saying he intended to boost the squad, the new Bluebirds boss gave a glimpse of a playful character and perhaps another sign that he might be the right man for the club after their first win at St James' Park since 1963.

Solskjaer pleased at 'perfect start'

"Actually, I was thinking maybe we could go with the local [Welsh] lads," he said, with a grin beginning to appear on the 40-year-old's still-youthful face.

"I've been thinking to ask the owner about [former Manchester United team-mate] Ryan Giggs, [Arsenal's] Aaron Ramsey, [Real Madrid's] Gareth Bale, maybe they are the targets."

The festive period has been anything but merry for Cardiff as the fallout between former manager Malky Mackay and Malaysian owner Vincent Tan has been played out in public.

Solskjaer, though, has come into the club with a fresh narrative, not only returning the side to winning ways, but doing so in a manner for which he was renowned during his Manchester United playing days.

Two goals by substitutes Craig Noone and Fraizer Campbell earned a 2-1 comeback victory on Saturday, something former striker Solskjaer knows all about after famously scoring a sensational winner for the Red Devils during the 1999 Champions League final.
