“No disrespect…” – Ole Gunnar Solskjær revealed why he ditched job offers before Bayern Munich interest



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United player and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær has ditched multiple job offers, with Bayern Munich now interested.

Solskjær, 50, was in charge at Old Trafford for three seasons before he departed midway through the 2021/22 campaign.

United signed Erik ten Hag after Ralf Rangnick took over on an interim basis. Since then, Solskjær has not dipped back into a managerial role.

However, that has been a conscious decision from the 50-year-old, who had interest from the likes of Sevilla and Besiktas but decided to stay away from management.

Solskjær has explained that part of the reason behind his break is due to the intensity of being in charge of United, but also that the next opportunity must excite him.

“When you’re the face of the biggest and best club in the world, you have to be alert all the time… everything you do is scrutinized. I enjoyed it, but I needed a break after,” he detailed whilst at an event in New Dehli this month.

“I am sure I have at least one club job in me,” he added. “It has to be an interesting one, exciting one, somewhere adventurous, somewhere I can be myself.

“Because… no disrespect, after you’ve managed Manchester United for three years, it’s like, where do you go? I want to feel that pressure again… When you see the games now, you miss it a little bit.”

Now, with German champions Bayern Munich reportedly interested in his services in an interim role, with Thomas Tuchel under pressure, Solskjær could feel that this is the perfect opportunity to come back into management.

The Bundesliga suits the Norweigan’s style of football, and he would have the best squad on offer despite them being behind Bayer Leverkusen in the league right now.
