Man Utd hero Solskjaer undergoes surgery

Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer underwent another operation yesterday on the knee injury that forced him to announce his retirement earlier this week.

The 34-year-old Norwegian plans to take his coaching badges and hopes to start a new career at United.

He said: "I wanted to play on but, when the knee blew up again last week and I realised I'd reached the end of the line and what the manager needed for United, I had an easy decision really.

"Once I get my official UEFA badges we will see what happens. I've not had a meeting yet about what capacity the manager wants me but we've had little chats."
