Solskjaer scores for Leaders

Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer, current manager of Norwegian League Champions Molde FK, and Manchester United legend, is the latest high profile speaker to join the Leaders Sport Summit over 10th and 11th October 2012 at Chelsea FC.

The highly-rated coach will be giving an exclusive interview as part of the Leaders in Performance conference and joins a long list of world class professionals dedicated to the development of elite sports stars.

Solskjaer said, “I have heard great things about the Leaders in Performance conference and so I’m really looking forward to getting involved this year. With such a unique audience of experts from across sport, I’m excited to discuss and share ideas about how we can develop our sportsmen and women, and ourselves, to achieve the very highest levels of sporting performance.”

The former Manchester United forward played at the club for 11 seasons, scoring 126 goals in 366 games, and was well-known for his ability to come off the bench to impact games, most famously scoring the last-minute winner in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich. He retired in 2007, becoming Manchester United’s reserve team manager, and then returned to his former club, Molde FK, in the Norwegian Tippeligaen as manager in 2011. In his first season as coach, he led Molde to their first ever league trophy, being crowned Norwegian Champions in late 2011.
