Solskjaer signs off in style as United reserves hammer Newcastle
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's 14-year, trophy-laden, career with Manchester United effectively came to a close on Thursday night when he took charge of the Reds' reserve team for the final time. United are not due to play again until the second week of January, by which time the Reds' legend who is assured of a permanent place in United folklore thanks to his last-gasp winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final will have moved back to his native Norway to become manager of his first club FK Molde. His tenure as United's second team boss was rewarded with five trophies to add to the impressive haul of gongs he collected as a player. And the club's latest batch of young hopefuls ensured that he went out in style as Unites Reserves hammered their Newcastle counterparts 5-1. With Ravel Morrison and William Keane both scoring twice and a further goal from Ryan Tunnicliffe, the Reds completed a comfortable win over the Magpies and brought a fitting end to Solskjaer's career. Warren Joyce, who has been Solskjaer's assistant for the past 30 months, has already been confirmed as the reserves' new boss. UNITED: Amos, M Keane (McGinty 86), Blackett (van Velzen 80), R Brown, Dudgeon, Vermijl, Norwood, Tunnicliffe, W Keane, Eikrem, Morrison. Not used: Coll, Lingard, Cofie. What do you think? Have your say.
