Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Wiki: born 26 February 1973 is a Norwegian football manager and former player who is the manager of Eliteserien club Molde. As a player, he spent most of his career playing as a forward for Manchester United.

Nicknamed “The Baby-faced Assassin”, he played 366 times for United, and scored 126 goals during a successful period for the club. He was regarded as a “super sub” for his trait of coming off the substitute bench to score late goals. Solskjær’s defining moment in football came in injury time of the 1999 UEFA Champions League Final, where he scored the winning last-minute goal against Bayern Munich, completing a remarkable comeback and winning The Treble for United. Before the century was up, a biography was written on him.
