About Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Six times a Premier League title winner as a player with Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a member of United’s treble winning team of 1999, famously scoring the injury time winner in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich. On the international stage he represented Norway 67 times and played at the 1998 World Cup and at Euro 2000.
Shortly before the end of 2018, Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker manager of Manchester United. His first match in charge saw him secure a 5-1 victory over his former club, Cardiff City. It was the first time Manchester United had scored five goals or more in a Premier League fixture since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final game in charge of the club.
Such was the immediate turnaround in the team’s form, he was voted Premier League Manager of the Month for January 2019, and by the end of March, having won 14 of his 19 matches in charge, Solskjaer was appointed as Manchester United manager on a permanent basis.
