Solskjaer promises to stay at Cardiff
Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that he will stay at the Welsh club despite overseeing relegation to the Championship, Sky Sports has reported.
The Norwegian was brought in to guide the club to Premier League safety, succeeding the sacked Malky Mackay back in January, but a disappointing record of just 13 points, culminating in Saturday’s 3-0 loss at Newcastle United has sealed their fate after only one season at the highest level.
The Bluebirds missed numerous chances to score at St. James’ Park with Fraizer Campbell and Aron Gunnarsson in particular going close, but Newcastle eventually ran out comfortable winners thanks to Shola Ameobi’s header and late close range finishes from Loic Remy and Steven Taylor.
After the game, when asked if he will stay for next season, former Manchester United forward Solskjaer said: "Definitely. I am the manager of Cardiff City football club and I am not going to lay down and feel sorry for myself.
"We will go into the next game showing professional pride and put in a good performance and then we will plan for next season."
