Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney have been challenged to prove themselves as real Manchester United legends.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - part of Reds folklore for THAT goal in the 1999 Champions League Final - claims they must emulate United greats Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.

Giggs, 34, has won more trophies than any other player in the English game, while Sir Bobby Charlton has hailed Scholes, 33, as his alltime favourite United player.

Norwegian Solskjaer, now United's reserve team boss, said: "These young players like Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani have just to look at players like Ryan.

"After all he's learnt in the game, he's still learning. He wants to improve.

"You've got Paul Scholes too - and Gary Neville. They are the hardest working players in training because they want to improve. They know they haven't got 10 years left in their careers so they want to make the most of it.

"For Paul Scholes, it doesn't matter to him if it's the Champions League Final or a training match, he is just as desperate to play.

"These are the role models that young players, no matter how good they are, can look up to. Look at Ryan Giggs, he's got 10 titles. That's the challenge for young players."

Solskjaer was speaking ahead of his Old Trafford testimonial today against Espanyol. And as well as dishing out advice to United's young players, he also hopes to hand £1million to charity.
