Solskjaer’s Former Club Get One Friendly Game Compensation

Manchester United are set to compensate Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s Norwegian former club side, Molde, for releasing the former Manchester United player turned manager with a friendly match.

Solskjaer was in charge of Molde in the Norwegian league before he was recruited to take over as interim manager at Manchester United in December and United on Thursday morning announced that they have a three year deal with Solksjaer.

Sportsmail reported that the agreement reached before Molde allowed Solskjaer to sign a three-year deal include, an exhibition game between both clubs

United announced three more pre-season fixtures earlier this week, and there is a 10-day gap between them playing Tottenham in Shanghai on July 25 and AC Milan in Cardiff on August 3 where another game could feasibly be fitted in.

The 46-year-old has to negotiate a mutual settlement of his £400,000-a-year deal at Molde at the time because a coach cannot have two contracts.

United are understood to have initially paid Molde less than £500,000 to appoint Solskjaer until the end of the season with compensation set to follow now that he has been given the job permanently.
