OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER reportedly rejected an offer from a Premier League club after his Manchester United sacking.
But the tactician is now ready for a return to the dugout this summer.

But a 4-1 defeat away to relegation-bound Watford sealed Solskjaer’s fate, paving the way for Ralf Rangnick to take charge.
It’s reckoned in the weeks and months that followed, Solskjaer was approached by several clubs from across Europe.
And one of those was a Premier League side looking to secure its top flight status.
Since Solskjaer’s United exit, only Everton, Watford, Leeds and Burnley have parted ways with managers.
Watford have all-but been sunk, while the other three are in a deadly battle to avoid the final relegation spot.
However, it’s reckoned Solskjaer will find himself a new job this summer, with the Red Devils legend ready for another go in the dugout.
Burnley are still without a permanent manager after hiring Mike Jackson as caretaker.
Meanwhile, Watford could have an opening with Roy Hodgson expected to retire for a second time.
And should either Leeds or Everton go down, they too may be on the lookout for new managers.
Despite the barren run at the end of his United managerial career, Solskjaer still walked away with a fairly impressive record.
Of 168 games, he won 92 and lost 41, with the remaining 35 draws.
Solskjaer is the only United boss post-Sir Alex Ferguson to secure consecutive top four finishes.
And he narrowly missed out on a trophy after losing last season’s Europa League final to Villarreal on penalties.
