Solskjaer: I Dream Of United Job

In Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first year of management at his former club Molde he won the league title, for the first time in Molde’s 100 year history.

With two games remaining in his second season, Molde are currently top of the league by one point, having beaten title rivals Rosenborg 2-0 last weekend.

However, Solskjaer has his eyes on one day returning to England to get some experience before becoming the Manchester United manager.

“I’m not naive enough to say I can do that job but in life you should have big dreams and big goals,” he said. “It’s a dream but let’s take just one step at a time. I want to become a manager in England. At the moment I’ve just started and it’s been two years more or less in Norway. So the time will come. I’ve spoken to clubs and explained it’s a bit early as I want to learn and don’t want to jump too big a bridge at the start. Managing is not easy but it’s very enjoyable when you are winning, it’s challenging when you have a bad start.”

    I love Ole fine, but frankly doubt he has the metal for the OT hot seat.

    The club history is something that the owners will look at carefully and any analysis will reveal one very important fact. 26 years! Not the 26 years that Sir Alex has been here, but the 26 years before that.

    Ole will not have the power to tell the owners where to shove it and someone like Gill will have exceptional power.

    Not saying Pep is the one either. But Ole can come int and might win a cup or two. Don’t see him having the qualities of a Busby or a Ferguson. Just sayin.

    I agree that he will not be a direct successor of Fergie. He needs a couple more stairs to climb before it.

    IF he could bring Molde to win Europa league two times like what Fergie did with Aberdeen. ;)
