Former Man Utd striker Solskjaer linked to Blackburn vacancy

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is among the contenders to replace Steve Kean at Blackburn Rovers, the BBC has reported. Solskjaer, a former Manchester United striker, is currently manager of Molde in his native Norway.

Keane resigned last week after claiming his position had been rendered untenable by on-going speculation over his future after 18 months in the job. Blackburn were relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season but had made a good start to life in the Championship and were among the early pace-setters.


Solskjaer is said by the BBC to be among three names so far considered, along with former Blackburn captain Tim Sherwood, currently employed by Tottenham Hotspur, and ex-Real Madrid Coach Bernd Schuster. A shortlist has not been drawn up, however, but the BBC adds Blackburn are said to be looking for a “young, progressive” manager, which Solskjaer could be classed.


Having retired as a player in 2007, Solskjaer worked with United’s reserve side before taking a senior position at Molde, the club for which he played before moving to Old Trafford. Solskjaer delivered Molde’s first league title in a century in 2011 and was in the frame for the Aston Villa job this summer before Paul Lambert was appointed.
