The fans used the church’s bells to pay tribute to their compatriot Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Video shows the moment Norwegian Manchester United fans gathered near their local church to celebrate the managerial success of compatriot Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Around 30 people gathered in Haugesund, in Rogaland, Norway, as the church bells played the tune of 1983 hit and fan favourite Glory Glory Man United.

Solskjaer, who was born in Kristiansund, Nordmore, played for the Norway national team and spent 11 years at Manchester United as a player under Sir Alex Ferguson before becoming caretaker manager of the Red Devils in December 2018.

Bernt Hjornevik is CEO of Manchester United Supporters Club Scandinavia said: “It’s actually quiet amazing to see Ole Gunnar – it means a whole lot for us Norwegian (fans) to see him back at Old Trafford.”

Solskjaer has enjoyed an impressive run of results since taking charge of United, culminating in an historic victory over Paris St Germain in the Champions League last week, and for Mr Hjornevik he has done enough to earn the job full-time.

“He has turned the club upside down in a positive wave in just two and a half months,” said Mr Hjornevik.
