Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Tipped As Leading Contender for Cardiff City Manager Job

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been tipped as the leading contender to replace Malky Mackay as manager of Cardiff City Football Club.

Mackay was sacked today after being forced out of the Welsh club by owner Vincent Tan. But there’s been a lot of speculation among pundits and bookies that Solksjaer is among the top candidates being considered for the Cardiff job.

Sources close to the club revealed earlier this week that Tan was keen on “a big name currently working at another non-British club.”

Solskjaer is currently manager at Norwegian club Molde, but there’s been speculation in the past two weeks that Solskjaer was interested in leaving Scandinavia and managing at a Premier League club. The speculation of his move to West Brom has cooled, with former Real Betis manager Pepe Mel tipped to be the leading contender. But now Cardiff could be the former Manchester United striker’s destination, while Mackay could be heading to West Brom.

    Solskjaer is not a big name in terms of managerial status. Time for the British reporters to get off their asses and do some actual research before reporting.

    This club is turning into a disaster. Vincent Tan is going to ruin Cardiff just like the Venky’s have with Blackburn Rovers and Carson Yeung and Birmingham. Outside of the big name clubs, the owners are unknown to most people. This nutcase will ruin Cardiff City FC if he keeps it up.

    Can’t see this happening at all. Ole was wanted at both Aston Villa and Blackburn several a years ago and turned them both down so going to a club like Cardiff with a idiot owner doesn’t make sense.
