Ole Gunnar Solskjær Early life

Solskjær was born in Kristiansund, Møre of Romsdal to Øyvind, a Greco-Roman wrestling champion, and Brita Solskjær. At the age of seven, he joined local football club Clausenengen, who was in the 3. division. Solskjær supported Liverpool as a child. Between the ages of eight and ten, he followed in his father’s footsteps and trained as a Greco-Roman wrestler, but gave it up due to being tossed around too much. Between 1992 and 1993, Solskjær completed a mandatory year’s national service in the Norwegian Army.

On 21 May 1993, CFK faced Molde in the Norwegian Football Cup, with Solskjær scoring Clausenengen’s only goal in their 6–1 defeat. Clausenengen was promoted to the 2. division in 1993, winning the 3. division by 12 points.

Solskjær made his international debut in a friendly match against Jamaica on 26 November 1995, just a few months before he joined Manchester United. The game finished in a 1–1 draw with Solskjær scoring the only goal for Norway. He continued his great goal scoring start by scoring three goals in his first competitive appearances for the national team during the 1998 World Cup qualifying campaign.[citation needed]

Solskjær played in both the 1998 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2000 for Norway. He formed a feared partnership with Tore André Flo which was seen as one of the best striking partnerships in Norway’s history.

Following his lengthy layout to injuries, Solskjær made his full game comeback on 2 September 2006, when he scored the first and last goals in a 4–1 win against Hungary in a Euro 2008 qualifying match. They would be his last goals for the national team taking his tally up to 23 goals.

On 7 February 2007, Solskjær made what proved to be his final appearance for Norway in a 2–1 defeat against Croatia, he finished with a total of 67 appearances for his country.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær about Paul Pogba

‘He’s injured now. Three or four weeks maybe, I don’t know,’ said the Norwegian.

‘He will probably need an operation on his foot. Let’s see how long it takes for him to get back.

‘He had scans, it’s nothing major but something that needs to be dealt with within a timeframe. We’ve had consultants looking at him and the club (have looked at him).

‘We have been without him all season. The boys who have been playing have been fantastic but it’s a blow Paul’s out.’

On the defeat to Arsenal, the United boss added: ‘Sometimes football is decided on little things but from 10 to 45 minutes they were better than us.

‘We are fit and getting better. The boys have really worked hard over the past few months. We’ve had ups and downs and I can‘t fault them because the energy and drive have been there. Maybe today it caught up with us.’
