solskjaer UPDATE: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Set to Be Unveiled As Cardiff Citys New Manager

UPDATE: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is with Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan at the Emirates Stadium, to watch Cardiff against Arsenal, and is set to become the manager of the Welsh club.

Earlier today Vincent Tan’s private jet was seen departing Norway with Tan and Solkskjaer on board, according to Norwegian television station TV 2.

The TV channel reports that Solskjaer is expected to put pen to paper before Cardiff City’s FA Cup match on Saturday away at Newcastle United.

Solskjaer will replace Malky Mackay as manager of Cardiff. According to reports in the British media, the Norwegian — who is currently under contract at Molde in his native country — will have the opportunity to spend in the January transfer window, which opened today.

    Mad Man Tan doesn’t want a repeat of the Malky fiasco so he has written into Sollskjaers contract his firing date and the reason for his firing. He’s hoping this will give Cardiff fans some stability.

    Career suicide? Surprised AVB didn’t rock up there.

    Tan to Solskjaer in the photo, ” Who are you again? You don’t look anything like Ryan Giggs”.
