Manchester United legend favourite for West Brom job

Published 1 Comments

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has become the outright favourite to become the next manager of West Brom following the dismissal of Steve Clarke, reports Sky Sports.

The Manchester United legend has long been tipped for a big managerial job having won back-to-back titles with Molde in his native Norway.

With his contract due to expire in the end of the season, Solskjaer has been linked with an imminent move to the Premier League and the vacant role at the Hawthorns is looking most likely.

Sky Bet have Solskjaer at 11/8 to replace Steve Clarke, who was sacked at the weekend following a 1-0 defeat to Cardiff.

"I can confirm that we have received formal requests, but will not say when they arrived or where they came from," Molde Molde director Tarje Nordstrand Jacobsen told Romsdals Budstikke.

Solskjaer, who forced himself in to Manchester United folklore when he scored the winner in the 1999 Champions League final, has been tipped to take the reigns at Old Trafford at some point in the future and could see a role at West Brom as a good stepping stone.

He has also come in as an outsider for the other vacant role in the Premier League at Tottenham.

At 33/1, there are plenty candidates thought to be more likely with Frank de Boer and Tim Sherwood the current favourites.
