Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been offered numerous returns to management since leaving Manchester United, but has rejected them all, including one approach from a Premier League club.

The Norwegian lost his job at Old Trafford in November after an embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Watford, going on to be replaced by Ralf Rangnick who came in as interim manager.

He has continued to be a presence in Manchester as his daughter Karna plays for United’s women’s side and he has been linked with a return to management in England.

Norwegian publication VG report that Solskjaer has received several approaches while he has been out of work. including from the Premier League, although the identity of the club has not been confirmed.

Everton, Burnley, Leeds and Watford have all sacked managers since Solskjaer left United.

The 49-year-old was not strongly linked with Leeds, Watford or Everton, but was spoken about as a possible replacement for Sean Dyche at Burnley.

That talk has died down, with Mike Jackson still in charge of the team and doing well, while another Manchester United in Wayne Rooney is the favourite to take the job permanently.

However, while he is unlikely to take charge at Turf Moor, Solskjaer is likely to return to a dugout soon, with the VG report stating that he is open to job offers this summer.

It seems very unlikely that he will be offered another chance of a Premier League return over the summer, but he is ready to consider new opportunities again now he is over the disappointing ending to his Manchester United reign.
