The Molde boss was the surprise choice to replace sacked Jose Mourinho last month but seven straight wins including three points at Tottenham have put him in the frame to stay on beyond the summer.
And the decision to bring back experienced coach Mike Phelan after a six-year absence has also proved to be a smart move by the interim United boss.
Brown exclusively told SunSport: “Ole is a very good choice, he’s managed, he has been here as a player and understood it was a short-term deal.
“Everyone is delighted with how has started, Ole along with Mike Phelan have lifted the place and they are playing more attacking football with pace.
“It’s only the beginning but you can’t fault the start and seven (wins) from seven is something no one has done.
And Brown, who shared the same Old Trafford dressing room for eleven years, scoffed at the notion being banded around that it would be easy for anyone to succeed after Mourinho’s divisive time in Manchester.
Brown continued: “Is it? Anyone can say that, come on.
“I get it, a manager goes and everything was down, when a new man comes in, you do get a lift.
“He’s got the big and important players going and the goals scorers are scoring gaols and raring to go.”
Solskjaer is no stranger to managing in the Premier League.
He answered the SOS call from Cardiff owner Vincent Tan in 2014 but failed to save the Welsh side from relegation
Then after a poor start in the Championship, he was shown the door.
But Brown is adamant the Norwegian’s time in Wales will have no bearing on his work at Old Trafford.
He added: “He prides himself on man management, you say Cardiff, but no disrespect, but we are talking about different levels of quality.
“If anyone gets a chance to manage a quality team, you’ll get found out if you can’t do it.
“Ole had a tough time there, but there are world class players here and if he can get over how he wants them to play, he’ll be fine.
“Man-management is one of the best parts, the manager (Sir Alex Ferguson) would speak to the players when it was right and instil confidence.”
Fergie has returned from upstairs to play a more hands-on role, and the current United boss has made no secret of that he is leaning on the legend for advice, a move fully endorsed by Brown.
He continued: “The respect he has for the manager (SAF) and if he brings him in every now and then, that’s a good thing.
“During my time the manager would bring in Sir Bobby Charlton, he would speak to us, he’s a great ambassador and it lets players know what the expectations are and standards we have at the club."
And despite Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino being the firm favourite for the vacancy, the double Champions League winner cannot see past the man currently in the hot seat.
Brown declared: “I hope he gets the job full time, we’re at the start when a new manager gets that lift, but I don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be in contention for the job.
“If it does continue to go well for Ole by the end of the season when his time up it will be difficult to bring someone else in.”
The five-time Premier League winner revealed during our chat he found around 200 United shirts in the house he has not seen for the best part of 15 years.
However, the discovery has failed to spark a trip down memory lane due to that old United mentality of quickly moving to the next challenge after winning trophies.
He joked: “Yeah, I’m trying to work out what games they were from – It’s funny as some of the fans will recognise them straight away.
“The manager would already say to celebrate winning trophies as they may not happen again.
“Sometimes when we won leagues we didn’t really celebrate, we would be buzzing in the changing room, but then it was about the next game.
“Never really thought about my career to be honest, since a kid that’s all I ever wanted to do."
His wife Leanne interjects: “He doesn’t realise what a career he has had and how respected he is.
“He can’t understand why people are interested in him."
The former United man added: “The experiences I’ve had with the club (winning trophies) it as like a normal thing to us."
Brown graduated from the Fletcher Moss Rangers Boys club in West Didsbury.
Jesse Lingard, Tyler Blackett both turned off for them alongside man-of-the-moment Marcus Rashford, who has been given a new lease of life under Solskjaer with five goals in seven games.
He added: “Ole is making him play to his strengths, his pace makes him a massive threat to defenders, I used to hate playing against quick strikers, especially as you get older.
“You can see Ole has been working with him, but a lot is down to confidence, he has a great start when he first burst on to the scene.
“But your second season is always the hardest, the expectation is there the second time around."
