Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is getting a statue in his hometown

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will get a statue of him erected in his hometown of Kristiansund, Norway. This has been planned for years with the Norwegian artist called Tore Bjørn Skjelsvik.

Some have claimed that Solskjaer is the best manager the club have had since Sir Alex Ferguson retired from the club despite having not won trophies at the club yet.

However, the Norwegian is very popular in his fine country and in his howtown of Kristiansund. He has 67 caps for his national team and is currently the most famous sports personality his country has produced so far along with Erling Haaland.

According to a Norwegian who goes by the twitter handle @footballqueen on twitter, the statue will not be set up immediately. It will happen after a few years when a campus will be built. But so far, the artist has completed the work and will be eagerly waiting to display his work.

Solskjaer will lead his squad to their 4th semi final in a row against AS Roma at Old Trafford later today.
