Having won the league with Molde on Sunday, Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he has been in touch with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to offer his congratulations.
“All the players have been in touch,” said Ferguson. “I texted him on Saturday thinking he had won the league but he was playing on Sunday. It is a great achievement considering this is his first year. He had a great spell with our reserve team so he wasn’t coming into the job blind but it is fantastic news.”
