Manchester United legend and reserve team manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could return to Norway after being lined up as the new boss of Rosenborg Ballklub. Eric Hamrén, manager of the Norwegian Premier League outfit, is favourite to land the post of Sweden national team head coach, leaving the Trondheim club seeking alternatives.
“It is only natural that the Norwegian club would check out Ole Gunnar’s situation. He will not be reserve team coach at Manchester United for the rest of his life,” Solbakken told vo.no of the ’99 Champions League final goalscorer.
Solskjaer, installed as United’s reserve team manager last season, is highly regarded at United and Sir Alex Ferguson is loathe to lose the 36-year-old. But ambitious Solskjaer may see a first move into management as a stepping-stone to greater things.
Rosenborg chairman Terje Svendsen, who denied that Solskjaer has already been offered the post, added that the club hopes to keep Hamrén in place.
