The moniker of 'super sub' is something of a backhanded compliment - no player wants to start the game on the bench and, having made such an impact as a sub, most would expect to be handed chances from the start.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prided himself on being able to study for weaknesses from the bench and then exploit them when he was brought on, though, and he did it to devastating effect throughout his 11-year Manchester United career.
Bought as a relative unknown for just £1.5m in 1996, Solskjaer made his mark by scoring 18 league goals in his debut campaign to help fire United to the title.
That proved to be his most prolific goalscoring season in the league, but he went on to net 126 goals in 366 games across all competitions - the most famous of which came in stoppage time of the 1999 Champions League final to complete United's treble in the most dramatic fashion.
The Norway international had come off the bench to score four goals in the last 12 minutes of a match against Nottingham Forest earlier that season, and a year later he again hit four in a victory over Everton.
Injuries eventually forced Solskjaer's retirement in 2007, by which point he had helped Manchester United to six Premier League titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League.
