Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s statue has been unveiled in his hometown in Norway. The United boss has had a life-sized statue of himself erected in his hometown of Kristiansund for representing his country brightly in football.
Solskjaer grew up in Kristiansund and joined the local division three side Clausenengen aged seven in 1980. A decade later, the Manchester United boss earned his first-team debut and after 115 goals in 109 appearances over the next four years, he earned a move to top-flight Molde.
Ole lasted for two seasons with the club, where he scored 41 goals in 54 appearances before completing a transfer to Old Trafford in 1996.
Solskjaer also earned 67 Norway caps and spent the rest of his playing career playing under Sir Alex Ferguson at United and confirmed his legendary status with 126 goals in 366 appearances for United, including the winner in the 1999 Champions League final.
The Norwegian stepped into coaching with the Red Devil’s reserves, then had a spell at Cardiff in between two stints as Molde’s boss before finally replacing Jose Mourinho as Manchester United Men’s first team manager in December 2018.
Now, in an honor of his footballing status, Solskjaer’s statue has been unveiled in his hometown of Kristiansund in Norway.
