Ole retires

One of Old Trafford's most popular players over the past decade is retiring earlier than expected. 34 year old Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has decided to call it quits for Manchester United after complications from a summer knee surgery.

Solskjaer, whose most famous moment was scoring the winner against Bayern Munich in 1999’s Champions League final, has been hampered by knee problems for the last four years. He scored 11 rather anonymous goals last season as United won the Premier League crown. He was expecting to play out this season and call it quits.

Solskjaer will remain at Old Trafford as a coach and serve his appointment as ‘club ambassador’, whatever that is.

Solskjaer joined United from Molde for 1.5m pounds in 1996 and made 366 appearances for United. He scored 126 goals in the 11 years at the club.
