Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Retires

He’s been one of the most popular figures at Old Trafford for the last decade but injuries have finally caught up with the baby faced assassin who will announce his decision to retire later today (Tuesday).

Ole Solskjaer was hoping to play a part in United’s campaign this season after under-going minor surgery in the summer and had already decided that this would be his last season as a player for the club but the decision has been brought forward after problems with his rehabilitation.

He joined United from Molde for £1.5m in 1996 and the former Norway international has made 366 appearances for United, scoring 126 goals with the most memorable being the extra time winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.

Along with the Champions League medal, Ole has won six Premier League trophies and two FA cups. Last season he helped United reclaim the Premiership trophy from Chelsea with eleven goals whilst his last game for the club came with an extra time appearance in the FA cup final defeat to Chelsea last season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will always be remembered at the club. Loyalty and putting the club first ahead of himself are rare traits in the modern game but Ole had them in abundance.
