Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken over as the manager of his former club. Previously, he was the caretaker manager, who succeeded Jose Mourinho after the latter was sacked He is a former striker and was known to be an excellent player for the Red Devils.

He kick-started his player career with Clausenengen at the age of 17 in 1990. He enjoyed a fairly decent 5 seasons with them until he moved to Molde and the striker made an almost instant impact. In his first season at Molde, he scored 20 goals in 26 matches.

Then in 1996, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer caught the eye of a certain Sir Alex Ferguson. He was a surprise acquisition as he was almost unknown outside his homeland. At the time Manchester United were pursuing striker Alan Shearer

Solskjaer was the only striker to arrive at Old Trafford that year. He was so far under the radar that many expected him to be a backup to Eric Cantona and Andy Cole. However he soon wormed his way into becoming a vital cog of the first team.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored 18 Premier League goals in 33 appearances (25 of which were starts) in his first season for United. The British media even nicknamed him “the Baby-faced Assassin” because of his youthful looks and his deadly finishing

In 2007 Solskjaer underwent minor knee surgery, which was a success. Unfortunately, he was not the same player since then and announced his retirement from professional football.

Later, at a home game against Sunderland, Solskjaer walked onto the pitch to say goodbye to the fans and received a standing ovation. 

In 2010, Solskjær signed a four-year contract with the Norwegian club Molde to take over as manager, where he played prior to moving to Manchester United. Solskjær continued as Manchester United Reserves manager until January 2011, when he took over at Molde for the start of the new season.

Four years later, he was announced as the manager of Cardiff City, but departed owing to Cardiff’s poor form. He returned to Molde in 2015, and remained there until 2018. This time, he had a dream return to Manchester United as the caretaker manger. After Jose Mourinho was sacked, Solskjaer took over and helped turn things around a little.

Achievements

As of his retirement, Solskjær held the record for the most goals scored for Manchester United as a substitute. He scored 28 goals off the bench, as well as the most Premier League goals as a substitute with 17.

As a player, he has plenty of accolades, though he has yet to bring home any silverware as a manager.
