Ole Gunnar Solskjaer played for Manchester United between 1996 and 2007, seeing his fair share of clashes with arch rivals Leeds United, scoring four goals against the Whites along the way. This weekend, Leeds travel to Old Trafford in the league for the first time in 16 years, hoping to dole out similar punishment as they did in the FA Cup ten years ago courtesy of Jermaine Beckford. Ahead of the game, Solskjaer has recounted his own experiences of Leeds, fully aware of the rivalry between the two giants of English football.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said “There were fiery games, tackles flying in, players from both teams who were winners. We had a few fights of course. Elland Road wasn’t the quietest place when we came off the coach walking into the stadium, put it that way, I enjoyed scoring two goals in a win at Elland Road. I came on as a sub and it was a header at the back stick from a cross from [Ryan] Giggsy headed back to the other side.”
