Cardiff City have unveiled Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager, with the former Manchester United striker taking the reins after leaving Norwegian club Molde FK.
The 40 year-old enjoyed a fruitful time with Molde, claiming two Norwegian Premier League – or Tippeligaen – titles and a Norwegian Cup, and will hope that he can replicate that success with Cardiff.
The first task will be to avoid relegation, as the Bluebirds currently sit in 17th place, just a single point above the drop zone.
Previous Cardiff manager Malky Mackay was plagued by interference and pressure from his board – in particular club owner Vincent Tan – and Solskjaer will aim to do things his own way as much as he can.
“It’s a fantastic challenge for me,” said Solksjaer.
“Cardiff City are ready to take the next step up, I hope I can help them.
“I’ve always dreamt of being a manager in the Premier League and I’m delighted to get the opportunity.
“I’m really looking forward to the challenge ahead. I’m going to bring my energy and enthusiasm to the club.”
