6 Feb 2019

On 6 February 1999, present Man Utd caretaker manager made history as a substitute against Nottingham Forest

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had an instant impact as caretaker manager at Manchester United and made a similarly quick contribution as a player for the Red Devils 20 years ago today. 

On 6 February 1999, Solskjaer came on for United as a 71st-minute substitute away to Nottingham Forest.

The Norwegian took just nine minutes to get on the scoresheet and netted his fourth goal by stoppage time, wrapping up an 8-1 victory for Sir Alex Ferguson's side at the City Ground.

With his 29-minute cameo Solskjaer is the only substitute to have scored four goals in a Premier League match.
