As per Swedish outlet Football Channel, SvFF (Swedish Football Federation) have met with former Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær recently to discuss about the Swedish head coach position.

The Swedish Federation met with Ole Gunnar Solskjær in December and it’s reported that the Norwegian was interested in meeting them.

However, the report also states that this was before the football association decided to narrow down to Mellberg / Gustavsson, so it’s unclear if the Norwegian is still a candidate or interested in the national team coach job.

Solskjær, 50, who has not been associated with any Swedish clubs in his career, is well-versed in Nordic football, thanks to his time as a player and coach at Molde. Since his departure from Manchester United in November 2021, Solskjær has returned to Norway.

His recent activities have included UEFA Champions League match analysis for UEFA and coaching roles within Norwegian youth football. In a rare interview, Solskjær was candid about rejecting several job offers but indicated a readiness to return to management.

“Yes, and I’ve had offers. The latest two from Saudi Arabia. My best friend, who is also my agent, goes through the offers. If you’ve been the manager of Manchester United, you can have your own requirements for what you want to work with,” Solskjær stated in a September interview with The Athletic.

With the SvFF unlikely to match the salary he received at Manchester United or the potential offers from other clubs, Solskjær’s involvement with the Swedish national team remains a doubtful prospect. There have also been recent links connecting him with Turkish club Besiktas.
