Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken over as Manchester United’s caretaker manager until the end of the season after the club dismissed Jose Mourinho.
Solskjaer had an uncanny knack of bailing United out of trouble as a player and Sir Alex Ferguson would regularly summon the striker from the bench if his side needed a goal.
The Norwegian’s super-sub status won him the nickname the ‘Baby-Faced Assassin’ due to his youthful looks and killer instincts in the box.
Here, Press Association Sport looks at some other memorable footballer nicknames.

Stuart Pearce – Psycho
Javier Hernandez – Chicharito (Little Pea)
It could be thought that West Ham striker Hernandez is know as Chicharito due to his height of 5ft 7in – but you would be wrong.

Eric Cantona – The King
