Solskjaer's son named in Kristiansund squad to face Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer son Noah Solskjaer has been named in the Kristiansund squad that is set to host the English giants on Tuesday.

Solskjaer takes his Manchester United side to Oslo in their fifth pre-season friendly, facing his home town team Kristiansund who has named his 19-year-old son in their 26-man squad for the clash.

The midfielder could make his senior debut if he makes it onto the pitch with Kristiansund manager Christian Michelsen saying: "While his father was more effective the closer he came to the box, Noah is more the one who sets up the attacks.

"He has lots of skills and football understanding - Noah has gone to a good school. He and several of these youngsters have been with us for a while.

Good Football

"We knew they were good football players, but what is fun is that we see that they are taking the level more and more. It's great for them and fun for us to see they grow well."

According to Manchester Evening News, Noah on his side said: "I have a small role model in Michael Carrick. In the beginning, I started upfront, but the longer it has gone on I have gone further back in the side.

"I'm now more of a number six in midfield than a number 10. It would be nice to get in the game. After seeing such big games, I've got used to it."
