MANCHESTER UNITED legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is back in management… with the Under-14s of Norwegian side Kristiansund.
That’s after he reportedly turned down several job offers this summer.
It’s been almost a year since Solskjaer, 49, was axed as United boss.
He swiftly returned to the Norwegian coastal city of Kristiansund following his exit in November.
And Scandinavian outlet VG claims Solskjaer recently took charge of his hometown’s U14s side, with youngest son Elijah one of their top stars.
The tactician has been taken several training sessions a week with fellow head coach Per Magne Hals.

And on Saturday, Solskjaer led his new side to victory over rivals Blindheim in the county series.
Speaking to local paper Tidens Krav afterwards, the Old Trafford favourite reportedly confirmed receiving several approaches over the summer months.
However, without naming the sides, Solskjaer added he rejected the proposals.
But Ole suggested he eventually wants to return to the dugout of a top-flight club, saying: “I love football.”

"Who is the coach or head coach does not play such a big role. I can be an assistant coach."
It’s added Solskjaer refused to talk about his time at United, which ended abruptly last year.
United's board took action after a dismal run of results which included a 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool, plus a 2-0 loss against Man City.
The final straw was a 4-1 defeat to relegated Watford.
And Solskjaer was brutally axed before being succeeded by Michael Carrick and Ralf Rangnick.
But he is still remembered fondly by United fans for his incredible time as a player.
