Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly being considered by Brighton & Hove Albion as they seek a replacement for Graham Potter, who was recently announced as the new Chelsea manager.
The Norwegian has been out of work since he was sacked by Manchester United last November.
As of now, Solskjaer’s intentions are unknown as he continues to work with his son’s U-14 side back in Norway, after returning to the dugout for the first time last week. He has been out of the limelight other than that.
With Brighton linked with an array of managers following Potter’s exit, Jeunes Footeux claims Solskjaer has been mentioned ‘internally’ by the club’s board.
It is noted in the article that Brighton are looking for a manager with a good command of the English language with experience in the top flight.
Solskjaer certainly fits that profile but it is very vague. I can think of many managers with a good grasp of the English language who worked in the Premier League.
While Solskjaer proved to be a strong man manager at United, everything went stale after two years and his tactics were not a match for the top coaches in the game.
If Brighton did get him, it would be a major shift in identity from Potter’s style of play and structure.
We wish Solskjaer the very best with any job he takes.
