“There is one condition I have before returning to Old Trafford. A contract is offered, and Solskjaer is expected to make an unexpected management comeback to the struggling team.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the former manager of Manchester United, may have been given the chance to rejoin the managing scene by taking the helm at Besiktas, according to some sources.

Since being fired by Manchester United in November 2021 due to a series of negative results, Solskjaer has not held a managerial position.

The Norwegian managed 19 games as interim manager after Jose Mourinho left Old Trafford, in addition to overseeing 149 games as the permanent manager.

During his first full season in charge of Manchester United, Solskjaer led the squad to a remarkable Premier League second-place result.

But following a humiliating 4-1 loss to Watford in the next season, his tenure was terminated.

Solskjaer reportedly received several job offers, but he turned them all down in order to wait for the ideal position.

Turkish journalist Yagiz Sabuncuoglu reports that the 50-year-old has now been given a one-and-a-half-year contract extension to take on the position of head coach at Besiktas.

The reporter withholds information regarding Solskjaer’s acceptance of the offer. However, NTV Spor (via Goal) indicates that the former United manager is very much inclined to close the transaction.

It has been rumored that he has been in talks with the Super Lig team for a while, particularly after Riza Calimbay left.

On December 21, Calimbay resigned from Tüpraş Stadyumu after Alanyaspor defeated them 3-1 at home.

Besiktas is presently 17 points behind league leaders Fenerbahce in fifth place in the rankings.

In the seven games that Calimbay managed Besiktas during his brief tenure, the team posted three wins, three losses, and one draw.

This season, Solskjaer is expected to take over as Besiktas’ third permanent coach if he accepts the position.
