HUMBLE Explained: The heartwarming reason Solskjaer does not park his car in manager's spot
Frank|April. 14, 2019
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refuses to park his car in the manger’s spot as he believes it still belongs to Sir Alex Ferguson.
Solskjaer played under the legendary Scot for 11 years before retiring in 2007, and he still considers the space at the Carrington training ground to belong to his former boss, despite now having every right to park there.
According to The Sun , he told his staff: “It just doesn’t feel right parking there. It’s still the gaffer’s place.
A United insider said: “Sir Alex had his own spot. It’s a busy car park and we have been waiting for Ole to claim dibs on the bay after he started driving himself in.
“Ole is in before most of the staff but he is just as unassuming as we remember him.”
