Solskjaer Glad To Start With FA Cup

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is raring to start as coach of Cardiff City and sees Saturday’s third-round FA Cup clash at Newcastle United as the perfect starting point.
With English Premier League survival top of the Welsh club’s agenda, Solsjkaer could be forgiven for looking to ease himself into life at his new club.
But, in the wake of Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert’s claim the FA Cup was a distraction he could do without, Solskjaer will not accept anything less than 100 per cent in a competition he won twice as a player with Manchester United.
“Every game is important”, Solskjaer said. “We know how close Cardiff were to lifting the cup a few years ago, so we go in there hoping to go through to the next round. The Premier League is very important but the FA Cup gives us a chance to build momentum.
“For me the game is great because it is the first game and I have had a six-week break since the Norwegian Cup final and I am eager to get going”.
