Former Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has conceded the club's re-signing of Cristiano Ronaldo "turned out wrong".
After starting his career at Clausenengen and then Molde, Solskjaer went on to play eleven seasons at Manchester United, where he won six Premier League titles and the Champions League.
Most notably, Solskjaer scored Manchester United's last-minute winning goal against Bayern Munich in the 1999 UEFA Champions League final.
As a manager, he previously took charge of Molde and Cardiff City, before spending three seasons in charge at Old Trafford. In November 2021, Manchester United announced they had parted ways with the Norwegian, who is now searching for another job.

In the 1998/99 Champions League final on May 26 1999 at Camp Nou, Solskjaer came on in the 81st minute for Andy Cole with United trailing Bayern Munich 1-0. After Teddy Sheringham levelled the score in stoppage time, Solskjaer met a Sheringham's flick-on from a David Beckham corner to score the winner. The goal secured United's second European champions trophy.
The '98/99 season also saw United win the Premier League title and the FA Cup, to claim the elusive treble.
Solskjaer also won Premier League titles with United in 1999/2000, 2000/01, 2002/03, and 2006/07, to add to the earlier '96/97 and '98/99 triumphs.
In '03/04, Solskjaer won his second FA Cup as a United player. He also won the 1999 Intercontinental Cup with them as they beat Palmeiras, the winners of the 1999 Copa Libertadores.

After two three-year stints at Molde, with a brief unsuccessful spell at Cardiff City sandwiched in between, Solskjaer became Manchester United caretaker manager in December 2018, replacing Jose Mourinho.
In 2019/20, Solskjaer guided the Red Devils to third place in the Premier League and a place in the next season's Champions League.
Famously, Solskjaer once revealed that Noah's favourite footballer was United teammate Wayne Rooney rather than himself.
In 2010, the Sunday Times' Sport Rich List estimated Solskjaer had a net worth of approximately £10million, making him one of British football's richest coaches. At the time, he was presiding over Manchester United's reserves.
During his spell as Manchester United manager Solskjaer was believed to be earning around £7.5million per year.
