Former Manchester United striker and current Molde FK manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not be the new Cardiff City boss, according to the Guardian.
With Cardiff owner Vincent Tan's outrageous behaviour after the Bluebirds' 2-2 draw at home to struggling Sunderland - what seemed to be booing the players off the pitch - it's no surprise the Norwegian manager didn't want to take the job.
After sacking Malky Mackay, Solskjaer was the bookies' favourite to be the next manager in the dugout at Cardiff, having led the Norwegian side to their first league title in their 100-year history, back in 2012.
Many believe that Solskjaer will return to the Premier League at some point in his career, having had such a successful playing career at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Ferguson is believed to be a keen admirer of the Norwegian's management, having said that from an early stage of his playing career, Solskjaer knew he wanted to continue a life in football after he had hanged up his boots.
Solskjaer would often take notes during training and would be keen to learn from Sir Alex Ferguson as he prepared for a life as a manager.
Solskjaer's Molde side have had success that emulates Ferguson's young squad in the 90s and have cemented themselves as a top club in Norway.
Vincent Tan will have to go back to the drawing board and re-think his appointment, after Solskjaer recently stated how happy he was with how things were going at Molde FK.
Any manager coming into the Cardiff City Stadium will feel the pressure from the first whistle, with Tan's ruthless approach; however, they will have financial backing according to the Cardiff City owner.
