Solskjaer makes emotional return as Molde boss

Date published: Wednesday 21st October 2015 10:36

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed as manager of Molde – less than two years after he quit the club to take charge of Cardiff.

The former Manchester United striker was in charge of the Norwegians from November 2010 until January 2014 before being lured to the Premier League by Bluebirds owner Vincent Tan.

But his stay in Wales was less than successful; the club were relegated at the end of that season and Solskjaer left the club in September after just over seven months in charge.

Now, after being out of work for more than a year, Solskjaer has been reappointed by Molde.

Molde, for whom Solskjaer played for a single season before his 11-year spell at Old Trafford, play Celtic in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Molde are currently seventh in the Norwegian top-flight with 43 points from 27 games.
