On March 31, 2006 Solskjær signed a new contract with Manchester United until
the end of the 2008 season, with a provision to allow him to develop his
coaching awards.


He also acted in an ambassadorial role for the club, when he travelled to
Hong Kong in 2006 and played with students at Manchester United Soccer School
of Hong Kong.

In July 2006, Solskjær participated in a pre-season game against Orlando Pirates,
playing for 45 minutes and scoring 2 goals in United's 4-0 win. He also scored in
matches against Preston North End and F.C. Porto. Ferguson praised the player
and said he would re-consider his plan to buy a new striker. On August 16, 2006
Solskjær returned for the Norwegian national team and played for 45 minutes
against Brazil in a 1-1 draw.

On September 02, 2006 Solskjær scored his first goal for the national team after
his injury, when he scored the first and last goals in a 4-1 win against Hungary in
a Euro 2008 qualifying match. It was also his first post-injury professional match
where he played the full game.

On April 19, 2007 Solskjær stated that he could not see himself playing
professional football past his contract expiry date, at the end of the 2008
season. He is likely to be offered a testimonial following his long service to the
club—and in recognition of his popularity with supporters.

In an interview in July covered on ManUtd.com, Solskjær refused to put a
timescale on his professional career, but he is confident he will play out the one
year left in his contract at Manchester United. He said, "The knee will never be
100 per cent again, but as long as it doesn't hurt I'll continue to play. I don't
know how long I can continue. It might be over after this season or I might be
able to play another season."


I think every United fan worships Ole Gunnar, I do......

I have never heard about these coaching plans etc etc but I for one will be very
happy if he do this for us.....he is such a very nice person and a great player - if
he coach the young players maybe they too turn out like he is.

Would be nice, talk about jumping in at the deep end first coaching job is United :p
I dont think Ole would make good manager to be honest.

To be good manager you must be ruthless, hard faced and you cannot dwell on the past and help players because you have nice history with them.......Ole is 'too nice' to be good manager - I think maybe coaching role is good for him. If he coach the youth teams it will be good for them.

We need a nasty, hard ruthless man for next manager - ROY KEANE !!! :D :)

Ole, when he turned down a very lucrative offer from Spurs, said at that time that he never had any intention of leaving United, and after playing would stay on in whatever capacity he could. He has always held onto that view and never been tempted by the dark side.

He is very nice guy and very loyal guy too - I would like him to coach the youth team - we would not know who is the young boys and who is Ole - he looks like a little boy bless him :)

Today in the modern world of sport when loyalty reaches as far as your latest contract Ole is a legend.
I havent any clue whether Ole would be great manager or not. Doing the hairdryer or not is not an indicator if you're a manager material or not. These days the manager daily work is to delegate the work to someone reliable as much as do the sideline coaching.

Ole is great. Masterful vision, and has been quality for many years. Slighlty losing his touch...but injuries and age have taken an effect... id like to see him as maybe a specialist coach, as in coaching young strikers at Manchester United.

I think Ole would make a fantastic coach, especially coaching the youth players. I can't really see him as a manager or assistant, but certainly as a coach.

They offer these coaching plans to all of the players who arent complete morons, ie Beckham. Im pretty sure Giggs did it, and Keano did it, and that eventually led to his job at Sunderland. I dont think he will be a manager , but he will certainly be a shooting coach, what he doesnt know about shooting inside the box isnt worth knowing. Just look at his goal v Reading, that is still one of the best finishes ive ever seen.
