Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be stopped taking the Man United job full-time by Molde


Ole Gunnar Solkjaer has made a pretty impressive start to managerial life at Manchester United. 

Since Jose Mourinho was dismissed in December, the Norwegian has overseen five matches and picked up a win in each of them. 

The Red Devils picked up big victories against Cardiff City and Bournemouth, while comfortably beating Newcastle, Huddersfield and Reading as well. 

Of course, Solskjaer hasn't had the toughest start to his managerial reign, but you've got to beat what's been put in front of you - and he's done just that. 

After turning United's fortunes around, many fans and pundits alike have suggested that the club legend should take charge on a full-time basis. 

However, even if the Manchester club did want him in charge next season, actually making that happen will be quite problematic. 


Before taking over from Mourinho, Solskjaer was managing Molde FK back in his home country - and he's actually under contract there until 2021.

The Norwegian team actually did United a big favour by allowing their manager to take over on an interim basis in England - but things could get much more complicated soon. 


According to the Mirror, there is no agreement between the two clubs past this season, and Molde don't see Solskjaer staying on past May. 

"The deal is until May 12. That is our Plan A and our Plan B," managing director Oystein Neerland has said. 

"We have no Plan C. We have only spoken with United about this period, January to May. Nothing else. I'm staying with this plan."

Thanks to the difference in league schedules between Norway and England, Molde haven't actually missed Solskjaer. 

In fact, they only return to pre-season training next week, with their competitive fixtures starting in March. 

The club know that they'll be without Solskjaer for the first two months. But beyond that, they fully expect him back. So it will be very interesting to see what happens come May.
