Have We Seen The Last Of Ole?

As if things couldn't get any worse for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United striker can chalk off the 2005/06 season as a disaster.

He has sat out the campaign and hoped to put forward his case for a recall after his bout of injury, but that has ended in ruins. He seems certain to miss the remainder of the season after fracturing his cheekbone in a reserve-team outing against Middlesbrough.

The striker suffered the injury in a clash of heads with Boro defender Ugo Ehiogu just seven minutes into the 1-1 draw and was immediately driven to hospital in Manchester for the extent of the problem to be assessed.

Although club officials have rated his recovery time as 'between six to eight weeks', some medics say he will not play again this season.

www.manutd.com: 'Ole will undergo an operation to reduce the fracture. He is likely to be out for between six to eight weeks.'

As Solskjaer's current contract expires during the summer, it raises a huge question mark over whether he will play for United again.

The 33-year-old finally returned to Premiership action at Birmingham in December. He also appeared in both FA Cup ties against non-league Burton a month later.

United also lost Gerard Pique to a dead leg and Quinton Fortune with a twisted knee.

Be a shame if it is. He has been seriously unlucky with injuries.

what a shame he is a legend at this club and you got to think would he still be the player he used to be if he hasn't had the injuries he had?

Ole is a inspiration to all players, dedicated, hard working and loyal. It's a real shame his career is ending in the way it is.
