Manchester United boss Ole Gonar Solskjaer has revealed how he ended a scout trip early due to a player’s haircut.
At the age of 48, Solskjaer has already established itself as a well-traveled manager. The Norwegian started his career at United after closing his boots, before managing Molde in Norway. From there, he had a spell in Cardiff before returning to Molde and Old Trafford in 2018.
As a result, he has worked with a number of players, while gaining his stripes by tracking players in his time.
However, not all scout trips are planned, as he revealed in a question and answer session with Sky Sports.
The United The manager said: “I once went to see a player and as he came out of the dressing room or through the tunnel on the pitch, he had a mojika, that was when I was back in Norway.
“I just said to my detector, ‘Go home, I’m not interested.’ This was a very short scout trip. “
Solskjaer made his name as a player at United, scoring a famous goal in the 1999 Champions League final.
Such an achievement made history on its own and added to Sir Alex Ferguson’s growing reputation.
However, the fact that he completed a campaign that won Treble for the Red Devils made it even more special.
In total, Solskjaer has scored 91 goals in 235 appearances in the Premier League.
Solskjaer never dreamed of Man Utd’s journey
When asked if he had dreamed of such a long-term relationship with United, he said: “You know, when I was a kid, I always liked manager games.
“I have always been very interested in putting together teams, tactics. But when I was playing, I never imagined working at Man Utd as a manager, no.
“Towards the end when I got injured, I started thinking about training and management and when I got the reserve team, who knows?
“You had a little dream over there, you have to dream big. Then, when I went to Molde, of course my main goal was to be as successful as possible and I hope to sit in this chair one day. “
Solskjaer and his team at United return to action on Sunday when they face Brighton in the action of the Premier League.
