Product Description

This is an offical replica 1999 Champions League Final shirt signed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the back with his rarely used full signature.

 

Solskjær joined Manchester United on 29 July 1996, and was something of a surprise acquisition as he was almost 
unknown outside his homeland and at the time United were still in the hunt for Blackburn Rovers and England striker 
Alan Shearer, who then joined Newcastle United for a world record £15 million. As the only striker to arrive at Old 
Trafford that year, it was widely expected that his first season would be spent as a backup to Eric Cantona and Andy Cole 
with only occasional first team opportunities. But within weeks of his arrival it was clear that he would be a key part 
of the first team sooner than had been anticipated, and would also prove himself to be one of the biggest Premier 
League bargains of the season.
Solskjær stayed at Old Trafford even though other clubs showed interest in the player in 1998. He refused an offer 
from Tottenham Hotspur, after Manchester United had accepted a bid for him. The Norwegian went on to score the 
stoppage time winning goal against Bayern Munich in the 1999 UEFA Champions League Final, helping the team secure the 
Treble and cementing his own place in the United folklore. Another defining moment in his career, was in the end of the 
league match against Newcastle United in 1998. The match was tied at 1–1, and Manchester United needed at least a draw 
to keep up with Arsenal in the race for the league title. Near the end of the game, Newcastle's Robert Lee had a clear 
goalscoring opportunity, running unopposed towards United's goal, but Solskjær had run across the entire field to commit 
a professional foul against him, thus denying Newcastle a winning goal. Solskjær did this knowing he would be sent off, 
and suspended for the coming matches. Supporters regarded this as an example of how Solskjær put the club above personal 
interest.
