Ole Gunnar Solskjær breaks silence on managerial links after Man United fans bring up contradiction



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær has broken his silence on a new managerial link.

Solskjær, 52, departed his role at United in November 2021 after a poor start to the 2020/21 campaign.

The Norweigan had relative success in the Premier League during the prior seasons, finishing third and second, but was unable to secure any silverware during his time in charge.

A legend of the club anyway after his 11-year stay at Old Trafford during his playing career, with one largely important goal in a certain Champions League game, many fans are eager to see what Solskjær does next.

He has stayed away from management since his United exit and recently admitted that it’s difficult to find a job that attracts him in the same way that his former club did.

Recent rumours suggested that the Norweigan was the favourite to take over the Republic of Ireland job. However, Solskjær has broken his silence on the reports.

Experienced journalist Andy Mitten, who has worked closely with Solskjær throughout the years, posted on social media platform X, formally known as Twitter, to share Solskjær’s message.

Mitten wrote: “Keep getting asked about the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for Republic of Ireland job story. Spoke to him. He has no idea where it came from. He has complete respect for the country and did speak briefly about the job in Jan[uary], but decided it wouldldn’t be right for him. Have a good weekend.”

This comes shortly after a fourth Goal of the Month award for Erik ten Hag’s side this season. Marcus Rashford grabbed the award for March after Bruno Fernandes, Alejandro Garnacho, and Kobbie Mainoo had done so previously this term.

It makes United the first ever team since the award started to win it four times in one season and whilst it is an interesting achievement, there are also concerns that United score too often from spectacular individual efforts.

This was a stick that Solskjær was beaten with when he was in the job, that his team was simply filled with “individual brilliance”.

Some fans are questioning why the same tag has not been placed on Ten Hag’s team this season.
