Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gets a new job

Man United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to become the new Norway international manager.

The story has been reported by VG, who claim that Molde have given permission to Norway to speak to their current manager.

At Molde, twice

Solskjaer took over at Norwegian club Molde for the second time in his fledging career as a manager in October 2015.

Solskjaer was previously in charge of the club from 2011 until 2014, having been a player for Molde before he joined Man United back in 1996.

During his first spell at the club, the baby-faced assassin enjoyed a win ratio of 55.20%. Moreover, he won the Norwegian Premier League in back-to-back seasons in 2011 and 2012, plus the Norwegian Cup in 2013.

The Norway job

The Norway job is vacant following the departure of Stale Solbakken.

Molde director Øystein Neerland has confirmed to VG that the club have allowed Solskjaer to go forward in filling the position:

We received an official notice a few days ago, and has agreed to it.
