One of the biggest cult heroes of the history of Manchester United hung up his boots due a series of knee injuries.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United career is over - as a player. His father had already confirmed the newspaper reports but now our legendary number 20 has announced his decision himself.
'I would like to thank the Manager, the coaching and medical staff and most of all the supporters, who have supported me through my career,' the official site quotes him. 'They have been fantastic and were a real inspiration to me when I was out injured.
'The support the fans and the staff showed me during that time was the main motivation for me making my comeback. I feel proud to have represented Manchester United for 11 years and have some very special memories."
I am filled with great sadness though a part of me tells it was inevitable. Yet he was part of United supporters' lives for a decade now, always gave his all and always played with a smile. I will dedicate an article to his most important goals and best performances of course.
Sir Alex Ferguson praised Ole with the highest of praises and I think we can all agree with the boss.
"Ending your playing career is a sad day for anyone, in the case of Ole, he has 11 fantastic years he can look back on.
'Ole has achieved everything a player could ever wish to achieve. He has been a great servant to the Club and has always remained a model professional in his responsibility as a player, in his demeanour and his manners have always been exemplary. Ole will hopefully go on to be a good coach."
Exemplary is something we could always associate with our No. 20. He was never a first team regular at Old Trafford - yet he was always a model pro, as Fergie himself had described him earlier. Thank you for all, Ole, and in your case, 'all' means very, very much.
