Cardiff boss Solskjaer: I turned down Aston Villa

Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he could've taken charge of tonight's opponents Aston Villa.

He confirmed he turned down the chance to take over at Villa Park two years ago.

Solskjaer revealed: "I spoke with Mr Lerner but it wasn't the right time. My family didn't fancy travelling and I am more ready for the Premier League now after more experiences."
