Ole Gunnar Solskjær has emerged as one of the frontrunners to become Manchester United’s caretaker manager after the sacking of José Mourinho.
The former Red Devils forward spent 11 years at Old Trafford and was remembered fondly for his instant impact as a super sub, which included scoring the winner against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final to secure a treble-winning 1998/99 season for the club.
The 45-year-old has since become a manager and led Norwegian side Molde in two separate spells.
Considering that United fans are familiar of him as a player, there are many that have no idea what he would be like in the dugout.
However, it is safe to say that many club supporters feel reassured by him managing the Red Devils after a clip emerged online that shows him in a training session at Molde.
While the Molde players are keen to pass the ball around, Solskjær is puzzled by the fact that no-one is taking a shot.
“Does anyone want to shoot?” he asked.
“You’re 18 yards away from goal and you keep f*****g passing it. Shoot!
“You won’t ever score a goal if you don’t shoot.”
Check it out below.
Unsurprisingly, United fans have warmly responded to the clip and are optimistic for him to come in as the new boss, especially after he showed his willingness to have his players shoot from distance.
Mourinho was dismissed today after the club’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool over the weekend, which left them in sixth place in the Premier League.
“A caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the season while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new full-time manager,” reads United’s statement.
“The club would like to thank José for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.”
United assistant manager Michael Carrick will assume the role of interim coach while the club looks for their new caretaker boss.
