Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the front runner for the Portsmouth managers job, according to the Sun.

The Norwegian, currently manager of Molde is reportedly the front runner to succeed Steve Cotterill after he left the club for Nottingham Forest a fortnight ago.

The ex-Manchester United striker, who wrote himself in the club's history with a host of late goals, would be making his managerial bow in England if he completed a move to Fratton Park.


Solskjaer made a name for himself as a player while at United, scoring the winner for the Champions League final in 1999.

If Solskjaer can be a success with Portsmouth, it will swell talk of him taking over as manager at United following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
