Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was spotted walking alongside Vincent Tan ahead of Cardiff’s game against Arsenal today ahead of his likely appointment as Cardiff manager.
As far as jobs in football go, Cardiff looked like a poisoned chalice following Tan’s public handling of Malky Mackay but it hasn’t seemed to deter Solskjaer even though Sir Alex Ferguson advised him otherwise.
It is very good for the Premier League to have Solskjaer coming back because his record of three trophies in three years for Molde is fantastic and he should be a stable manager in a wobbly ship at Cardiff.
Mats Daehli may follow Solskjaer to Cardiff and the 18-year-old is a fantastic midfielder who has only improved since leaving United in the summer.
There’s no doubt it is going to be a tough job for Solskjaer but with a bigger budget and Premier League football, the move could be a springboard for Solskjaer’s managerial career. I hope he doesn’t suffer the same fate as Mackay did from Tan.
Any United fan would love to have Solskjaer back at Old Trafford in any capacity. He was our reserve manager for a couple of years before he moved to Molde and there is every chance he could join United in the future, something that could happen faster now that he has returned to the Premier League.
