Manager Bio

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the current Manchester United manager following a spell as caretaker manager.

Solskjaer enjoyed a successful playing career before going into management.

Signed by Man Utd from Norwegian club Molde in 1996, Solskjaer spent 11 seasons at Old Trafford, scoring 91 goals in 235 Premier League appearances and helping his side win six PL titles.

The Norway international memorably scored the added-time winner for United against Bayern Munich in the 1999 UEFA Champions League final.

He also remains the only substitute to score four goals in a Premier League match, achieving the feat in a 19-minute appearance against Nottingham Forest in 1999. 

Having hung up his boots in 2007, Solskjaer continued to work for Sir Alex Ferguson, coaching the first-team strikers before taking charge of the reserve team.

In November 2010 he became manager of Molde and guided his former club to their first league title in their 100-year history in his debut season.

Molde retained their title, before going on to win the Norwegian Cup in the following campaign.

Solskjaer landed his first managerial role in the Premier League in January 2014 when he was announced as manager of Cardiff City, who were lying one point above the relegation zone.

The Bluebirds were relegated after finishing 20th in the Premier League.

After eight months at the Welsh club Solskjaer returned to Molde, who finished runners-up in the Norwegian top flight in successive seasons.

In December 2018, he was confirmed as caretaker manager of Man Utd for the remainder of the season.

The Norwegian was given a three-year deal in March 2019 following 10 wins out of 13 in the Premier League and a comeback victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
