Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken over as manager of struggling Premier League side Cardiff City.
He replaces the sacked Malky Mackay on a 12-month rolling contract.
Solskjaer made his mark on international football in 1999, in the same year Cardiff were promoted to the former Division Three.
Then a striker for Manchester United, he came off the bench to score the winning last-minute goal in a Champions League showdown against Bayern Munich.
Fifteen years later, he takes on a task of equal enormity; making sure the Bluebirds avoid relegation, but also finish higher in the table than rivals Swansea City.
He hit the target perfectly when he told a news conference: “I would like us to finish above Swansea, that must be an aim… that will be important for everyone here.”
The Norwegian comes from leading Molde to two league titles and a cup win in his home country.
Cardiff’s third boss in as many years, Solskjaer will be looking to prove himself in his first managerial position in a British club.
However, his new position will focus on survival rather than titles, as Cardiff battle to preserve their top-flight status, achieved last season under Mackay after an absence of 51 years.
