Neil Moxley at www.dailymail.co.uk has an interesting article this morning.
Apparently Ole Gunnar Solskjaer flew back into a bit of a storm in Norway as his current club Molde (and former Wimbledon) owners (or major investors at least) weren`t too happy that he`d jetted off without their permission to talk to Villa.
Well, if you want him as manager, that just might make it a bit easier to get him then?
Neil`s report says But it seems that the damage to Molde could leave Solskjaer in a difficult position. The former owners of Wimbledon, Kjell Inge Rokke and Bjorn Rune Gjelsten, were unhappy. The did not authorise his trip to England and are threatening to withdraw their patronage.
Solskjaer has a press conference today for his teams game, he`ll bound to be asked and I would assume he`ll refuse to comment!
Ole has already said: 'I can confirm I have spoken to Aston Villa. It was not negotiations, but a first talk."
Full report: www.dailymail.co.uk
Meanwhile www.express.co.uk say that the talks went well and 'he is believed to have made a decent impression`.
I kinda wonder how they think they`d know that? Randy and Paul wouldn`t be talking and Ole hasn`t let on how the talks went, just that they did have talks.
I`m surprised at those that are surprised that we are currently interviewing candidates, the 2+2= he will be manager by tonight type stuff is a bit mad really. We want the right man, not the quickest to appoint don`t we?
It might well still be Ole, but where is the immediate rush? Yes, it needs to now be done within the next week or so and I`m sure it will be. But he panic of some is ott, this time we have time, and we all want them to get it right after last seasons disappointment don`t we?!
