Solskjaer, related to the ‘UCL Round of 16’ team…reunited with Manchester United
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has emerged as a candidate for Club Brugge.
Solskjaer remained a Manchester United legend during his playing days. He played for United from 1996 to 2007 and scored 126 goals and 50 assists in 366 games in his career. Coach Solskjaer is also the ‘original’ title of ‘Super Joker’, which is given to players who play as substitutes and score important goals for the team. In the 1999 European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) final, he played as a substitute and scored a come-from-behind goal, becoming the number one contributor to achieving the treble.
After retiring from his playing career, he turned to coaching. He started his managerial career at Cardiff City, as well as Molde FK in his home league. In December 2018, he took over the baton of Manchester United as acting manager, and his performance at this time was positively evaluated and became Manchester United’s ‘official’ manager.
So Solskjaer led Manchester United for about three years. After Sir Alex Ferguson retired, Manchester United, which had been looking for a successor for a long time, gave Solskjaer a little longer ‘time of faith’, unlike other managers. He seemed to show some promise and be recognized as Lord Ferguson’s successor, but in the end he did not succeed. Having coached 168 matches in Manchester United’s career, he recorded a 54% win rate.
Since leaving Manchester United, he has yet to continue his coaching career. Almost a year and a half has passed, but he is still ‘unemployed’. 메이저놀이터
Then, rumors of a director’s return surfaced recently. The protagonist was Club Brugge of the Belgian league. The British media’Daily Star’ quoted the’Times’ and reported, “Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, along with Ronnie Delia, who led Celtic, and Dino Topmöller, who was Bayern Munich’s assistant coach, are considered candidates for Club Brugge.”
Club Brugge is a ‘prestigious’ team in Belgium. It forms a rivalry with Anderlecht and KAA Gent, and has won the league championship for three consecutive years from the 2019-20 season to last season. With this qualification, he advanced to the UCL finals this season and defeated Leverkusen and Atletico Madrid in the group stage to reach second place and advance to the round of 16. This season, it remains in 5th place in the league, but it is a team that can be expected to consistently participate in the UCL every season. As much as that, if Solskjaer returns to Club Bruges, he can also draw a picture of reuniting with Manchester United in the European competition.
