OGS Press Conference & Bits (Updated Twice)

OGS Press Conference & Bits (Updated Twice)

A bit more on the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fall out in Molde, and his chances of actually being our new manager.

Twitter stuff via Prep :-)

Villa sources close to Dagbladet says RL and PF were impressed with OGS. The meeting lasted four hours.

Dagbladet thinks OGS seems irritated by the fact that Molde questions his loyalty and professionalism.

They also believe that OGS's realtionship with the board have soured in light of all the events.

Clauses in OGS's Molde contract: if a club approaches the club for his services, they would have to reach an agreement with Molde.

-----

Admittedly nothing earth shattering and snippets of those were doing the rounds yesterday such as the 4 hour meeting.

Most interestingly though OGS has confirmed that we scouted him for the informal chat, he hadn't made contact with the club himself over the position.

He also, despite the sponsor fall out and club backtracking that's gone on, OGS states categorically he has handled all of this in the proper manner, that he would have regretted not taking the opportunity to talk to Villa, and he doesn't believe he has anything to answer in terms of the Aker issue.

He also says that whilst Randy's jet arriving in the morning, as opposed to the night before, would have been useful, the press and the leaks wouldn't have been any different. So his behaviour and the club's have been spot on, and the only people to answer for the furure around the interview are the sponsors themselves.

Watch the interview, it's translated:



It's not quite come and get me, as he is acting properly with his words, but I think it's clear he doesn't appreciate the behaviour of the Molde chairman in his comments directed at him and the press response, but also that he's ours if wanted.

Sent from Prep who runs Vital Villa twitter for us:

More quotes emerging from OGS

"Ole quotes: "If I get an offer, I will leave as soon as I can. I will offer Eikrem a deal and I will bring Richard Hartis and Mark Dempsey.""

"This is what Ole answered to his bosses when he was given permission to talk to Villa."

http://t.co/wBH6PCnN | Norwegian article: Confirmed by the Molde-director and Ole has said: "It's basically what I said."

During the press conference Saturday morning would not MFK-management or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to say what the manager answered the three questions from the boards of ASA Molde Football and Molde FK, and the owner Røkke. Tarje Nordstrand Jacobsen said only that Solskjaer did not give the answers they wanted.

Saturday night, MFK Director Tarje Nordstrand Jacobsen in Rbnett with the answers from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - so Jacobsen reproduces them from the conversation.

1. Will you lead the MFK of the season?

- It`s a hypothetical question, but I get an offer, I will travel as soon as I can - probably after the game against Hønefoss.

2. If / when you go from MFK, will you bring someone from the support of MFK?

- I want to bring Mark (Dempsey) and Richard (Hartis).

3. If / when you go from MFK, will you take with you some of MFK`s players?

- Yes, I want to make an offer to Magnus Wolff Eikrem.

- Furthermore, I confronted Ole Gunnar that he would not take such a situation had developed on Thursday evening (May 17th). If he went by plane the next day, it would possibly have consequences. In my experience this, this was a ordrenekt of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said MFK Director Tarje Nordstrand Jacobsen Rbnett.


Another Update

It seems that OGS has responded to the publication of the alleged questions and answers -

Click Here for source:

It is sad that a conversation between me and a leader in MFK comes out. This shows what kind of game this is, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to Romsdals Budstikke.

Is there a correct representation of your answers?

No, it's not a 100% accurate representation of my answers. The main ingredients, however, I can confirm. Today we had a nice conversation within the club where we agreed that we should look forward. And then comes this out. This benefits no club.

How would you comment on the content of reproduction?

I have a team around me that it would be natural to take with you. But it is not the situation now. I have not received an offer to consider from Aston Villa. Now I wanted to look ahead with MFK.

Really doesn't look like Molde are coming out of this very well following Aker's over reaction.

my fear is that Randy takes too long over this, and another club ( Liverpool? Mind you, cant see OGS wanting to go to the scousers with his Manc background) nips him and grabs him before we do

why would OGS commit managerial suicide by going to pool? that job is a disaster for most managers - they expect 4th with those overrated players. Villa is by far the right choice for him - randy WHY HAVENT YOU OFFERED HIM THE JOB???

nooo i'm just saying - we don't want to drag our feet here. Offer him the job, get him signed, and we have nearly 3 months to prepare for next season

Sounds (reads!) like a top bloke. Handles media and speaks well - unlike the drivel that has been spurted fro the last year. I agree, go get him Randy.

It was such an inspired option to come up with - OGS for manager - I would LOVE to know who came up with the genius idea of approaching him. It CAN'T have been Lerner or Faulkner

You have to interview / talk to everyone on your shortlist first. Press are reporting Lambert Monday, I guess there might be another rabbit out there. Tuesday / Wednesday should know who they are going to plum for, I can't imagine Randy wanting to stay in the UK for weeks on end...

agree daveyboy. They might speak to another candidate and be more impressed. Everyone would have been up in arms two days ago if the board had come out and said that they weren't going to consider Lambert, rodgers, martinez, AVB etc
