Molde coach Solskjaer unsure of next move after Villa talks

Molde coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unsure of his next move after talks with Aston Villa.

Manchester United legend Solskjaer, his wife Silje and agent Jim Solbakken were flown by private jet from their home town of Kristiansund to Birmingham for a four-hour meeting with Villa representatives on Friday.

They returned to Norway on Friday night to learn that Molde's billionaire backer Kjell Inge Rokke had pulled the plug on his company's 20-year support as a result of the meeting with Villa.

Solskjaer defended his handling of the affair, and said: "It's up to Aston Villa whether there's anything more.

"I've only spoken with them and expect them to speak to more people.

"They're looking for a new manager. If they make contact, I'll make a decision then."

He jokingly added: "But I won't wait for a private jet."
