The curse of ‘mocking’ Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – Arsenal, FC Barcelona and West Ham have all suffered

Sunday’s draw at home to Aston Villa was the latest in a long line of uninspiring results under the Norwegian, with European qualification now improbable, especially if they lose to rivals Man City live on talkSPORT this weekend.

The former Molde boss was appointed in temporary charge almost a year ago after the sacking of Jose Mourinho. Under his tutelage, United began to pick up results and gather serious momentum.

A permanent role was offered in April of this year, with the contract signing coinciding with the aforementioned dreary run of form.

But this has not stopped diehard United fans across the globe belting out an anthem in tribute to their club legend.

One of the key men from the 1999 treble, Solskjaer was duly immortalised in the song below by fans.


Sung to the tune of 'Waterfall' by the Stone Roses


“Ole’s at the wheel,

“Tell me how good does it feel,

“We’ve got Sánchez, Paul Pogba and Fred,

“Marcus Rashford, a Manc born and bred,

“Duh du, du du du du du

“Duh du, du du du du du

The greatest of English football,

“We’ve won it all.”

However, fans have taken the song and used it as an excuse to poke fun at the 46-year-old after claiming results against Man United.

In fact, even the social media administrators of rival football clubs have taken to mocking United, but it has often come at their peril.

Check out three instances below where the ‘curse’ of Solskjaer has struck at home and abroad.
