'And Solskjaer has won it!'

The one time baby-faced assassin of Manchester United has proven that he also has a dab-hand when it comes to football management. In just his first season away from United, he has managed to win the Norwegian Tippeligaen with Molde FK, for the first time in the club's history. Molde's season has gone from strength to strength, and they have capped off a marvellous campaign with two games to spare, after fellow league chasers Rosenborg failed to win, and Molde picked up a point giving them an eight point cushion.

Solskjaer was hailed for his time at United, and was originally a player at Molde, when spotted as a potential talent for the future. He went on to win 13 trophies and scoring 126 goals in 366 games for United, most notably the winner against Bayern Munich in the 1998/99 Champions League Final, to not only seal the trophy, but also confirming the treble.

Solskjaer has been linked with a move back to England, with teams such as Portsmouth in the running. There is a slim chance he may return to Old Trafford, once Sir Alex has called it a day, but for now it is time to enjoy the glory with Molde.

Sir Alex Ferguson has brought in more talent from Molde, in the shape of Mame Biram Diouf, hoping that he can prove to be as successful as Solskjaer.
