Solskjaer praises Norwegian football development
« on: August 18, 2010, 02:33:50 PM »
Ole Gunnar Solskjær thinks Norway has a good system for developing football talents.  Manchester United's reserve team trainer has been involved in development in Norway for some years and set up a football academy in his home town of Kristiansund.

"They have worked long and hard in Norway.  The present generation of Under-21s is well up in European class.  Also the Under-19s.  Several English top clubs are out after our talented players", said Solskjaer to TV 2 Sport.

Why?

Man Utd are one of the few clubs to have signed a number of youth players from Norway.

Magnus Eikrem - 20 yrs old
Joshua King - 18 yrs old
Etzaz Hussain - 17 yrs old

Oh, well, the less said about Man U and women's football, the better :(  but Ole Gunnar is very supportive of girls as well as boys at his football academy in Norway.
