Ole Gunnar Solksjaer

Where is Ole Gunnar Solksjaer now?

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer also known as “The Baby Faced Assassin”, hung up his boots in 2007 after a hugely successful 11 year career with Manchester United.

Since retiring from playing Solksjaer has gone into coaching and he worked for Alex Ferguson coaching the strikers for the Manchester United first team for the remainder of the 2007–08 season.

In the summer of 2008 he took over the reserves team – a role he stayed in until December 2010 when he left to take over the manager’s job at Molde in Norway.

Solksjaer was a sensation in his first season at Molde winning the club their first title for 100 years.

This led to Aston Villa approaching him for the vacant managerial post after Alex McLeish was sacked but Solksjaer opted to stay put and won the league title for a second year.

In January 2014 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was appointed the new manager of English Premier League side Cardiff City after winning back to back league titles with Molde.

Unfortunately he was only the job for nine months before leaving the club in September 2014 after differences with controversial owner Vincent Tan.  

Shortly after leaving Cardiff City, Solksjaer returned to his first club Clausenengen FK to assist with the training of their youngsters.

In October 2015, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was back in football management when he was appointed head coach for a second spell at Norwegian side Molde.
