Published Add your comment

Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunner Solskjaer will not be returning to the Premier League to take over as manager of Blackburn Rovers, according to the 38-year-old's club Molde.

The Norwegian striker has begun his managerial tenure with his former side in blistering fashion, leaving them on the brink of the league title with seven games remaining.

His success has caught the eye of many across Europe, not least Blackburn Rovers who were linked with replacing the former United player with current manager Steve Kean.

However a Molde spokesman said: "These rumours will not let Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lose focus in the run-in for the Norwegian League.


"Ole thrives at Molde with his players. He has an agreement for another two-and-a-half years and these years will be spent with Molde."

Solskjaer wrote himself in United follow for his reputation of scoring late, and inevitably important goals for the club.

His injury time winner against Bayern Munich in 1999 will be the goal he'll be best remembered for, and given his immediate success at Molde, and his links with the club in a playing and coaching capacity, having taken over the United reserve team in 2008.
