Ole Gunnar Solskjaer returns to Norway as Manchester United boss takes end-of-season break to watch former club Molde lose to KristiansundManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in Norway on ThursdaySolskjaer watched former club Molde as they lost 3-2 away to KristiansundThe United boss wore sunglasses as he sat among the fans in his homeland

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took a trip to Norway this week to watch his former club in action.  

Solskjaer was Molde boss between 2011 and 2014, then again from 2015 to December last year when he joined United as interim manager. It was originally agreed that he would return to the Molde hot-seat after guiding United to the end of the season but he signed a permanent deal at Old Trafford in March.

Although Solskjaer is no longer employed by Molde, the club is still close to his heart so he travelled to their away game at Kristiansund on Thursday.

Solskjaer's presence failed to inspire Molde to victory as they lost 3-2. 

The result weakened Molde's position at the top of Norway's Eliteserien.

Solskjaer twice won the Norwegian league title with Molde as manager — in 2011 and 2012 — but the club have not been champions since 2014, with Rosenborg dominating the division in recent years.

The United boss will likely have relished the chance to take his mind off the current goings-on at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer was said to be furious after United ended the season with a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Cardiff.

His squad appears to be in desperate need of an overhaul.

And United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward has vowed to back Solskjaer in the summer transfer market.

'After a turbulent season, everyone is focused on building towards the success that this great club expects and our fans deserve,' said Woodward as United announced their latest financial results.

'It clearly didn't end the way we hoped, finishing sixth place, and with a disruptive managerial change part way through. Everyone at the club - the board, the manager, the squad and all the staff are resolute in our desire to get United back to the top of English football. We continually look to improve staff on and off the pitch to achieve this.'
