Ole Gunnar Solskj r Hangs Them Up

Felix TangCorrespondent IAugust 28, 2007

Ole Gunnar Solskjær, nicknamed the "Baby Faced Assassin," announced his retirement today.

It was sad news for Manchester United fans everywhere.

Ole has been a very loyal servant in his 11 years with Man U, and I can't myself believe he's finally given up on his injury problems. 

I still remember when he scored that vital goal in the 1999 UCL final against Bayern Munich—which will probably be the most prominent part of his legacy. 

The loss leaves Alex Ferguson with three possible strikers—Rooney, Saha, and Tevez.  Tevez is the only fit one, but Saha will come back soon—so when the Black Cats come to Old Trafford this weekend, we hope to have at least two strikers at our disposal. 

Still, Ole's retirement will definitely leave a void.
