Sir Alex Ferguson has advised Ole Gunnar Solkskjaer to concentrate on his domestic career and not to return to international football with Norway.

Sir Alex said:

‘Ole should concentrate on club football. I’m not saying that in a selfish way, I just feel it is difficult enough for him to complete a comeback as it is.’

‘To involve himself in, and focus on, international football at the age of 33, having been out for as long as he has, is asking too much.’

The 33-year-old striker has returned from a career threatening struggle with knee injuries, it will be great to see him back and firing them in for the Reds.
