Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to retire on Tuesday after admitting defeat in his long-running battle with knee injuries.

The Norwegian forward, who scored the winner in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich as United won the treble in 1999, made several comebacks in the last four years but has failed to fully overcome the problem.

And according to The Sun newspaper, the 34-year-old - who has not appeared in any of United´s matches so far this season - will finally admit defeat in his long-running battle with injury and call it a day.
