EPL: Good luck on the wrong side of Manchester – Solskjaer tells Haaland

 Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland has revealed the text message Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sent him after he completed his £51 million move from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

According to Haaland, the former Manchester United boss made it clear he finds himself on “the wrong side of Manchester”.

The Norway striker has previously worked with his compatriot, Solskjaer at Molde.

There had been speculation at one stage of the pair being reunited at Old Trafford, after Solskjaer returned to United as manager in 2019.

However, no deal was done and one of the most sought-after strikers will now be plying his trade at the Etihad Stadium

“When I signed with City he congratulated me and wrote to me ‘Good luck on going to the wrong side of Manchester’.

“We talk sometimes. As you know, he had a huge impact on my career when I was at Molde. He’s a good guy,” Haaland told the Manchester Evening News about his latest interaction with Solskjaer.
