Strettycast #84 – The Guardian’s Jamie Jackson on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Dale catches up with author and Guardian journalist Jamie Jackson to discuss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After writing The Red Apprentice, a biography on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Jamie Jackson appears as a special guest on the Strettycast to offer some insight about how the Norwegian operates as Manchester United manager.

We take a look at the most recent transfer window as Jackson reveals Liverpool are interested in a player United wanted to sign last summer…

Moreover, this intriguing conversation will give you a taste of Solskjaer and what his version of the hairdryer treatment is really like. Some people think Solskjaer is too soft in his approach — a pushover almost — but in this episode of the Strettycast we learn that is not the case behind the scenes.

Jackson’s new book goes into great detail about Solskjaer’s upbringing, bursting onto the scene in Norway and how his move to Manchester United came about. It can be picked up now via Amazon.

P.S The Guardian journalist claims Manchester United have no intentions of sacking Solskjaer and, on top of that, Jackson doesn’t believe the club has been in contact with Mauricio Pochettino.

  1. Really enjoyed the interview – I haven’t listened to a cast for a while 😔- but this one whetted my appetite for more. The opinions on the Stretty Facebook page aren’t always productive so this cast was really enjoyable & made a refreshing change from the acrimony elsewhere. Thanks for asking my question (Not quite the answer I’d hoped for) but some fascinating insights into Ole & well-informed opinions. Thanks Dale/Jamie
