Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has recently submitted a planning permission application to Cheshire council requesting that he can legally build a fully astro-turfed, 5-a-side pitch in his garden.
Solskjaer was named as United’s permanent boss in March 2019 and despite several impressive spells, the Norwegian has always come under criticism with suggestions that he may not be up to the job.
The Norwegian’s long-term United future has been relentlessly cast into doubt, especially after The Mirror ran a report which suggested executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was prepared to show him the exit door.
However, the continued speculation surrounding his future has not deterred Solskjaer’s commitment to the cause as he continues in his quest to restore his beloved Reds back to their former glory days.
According to a recent report from The Sun, Solskjaer is taking his managerial responsibilities so serious he plans to take his work home, literally.
The Sun claim that the United gaffer has recently submitted a planning permission application to his local Cheshire council requesting that he is allowed to install a 5-a-side football pitch.
It is also understood that Solskjaer’s application also contains a two-metre high perimeter fence.
The Sun’s report includes quotes from an unnamed source who said: “Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] lives, breathes and sleeps football but you’d think he’s got enough on his plate trying to turn United around.
“Maybe he wants to put in some extra work at home to improve results on the pitch.”
