Roy Keane has visited Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his 'first role' since leaving Man Utd

Roy Keane has recently visited Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his first job since being sacked by Manchester United last year.

Solskjaer left United last November after a dismal start to the season, with the final straw coming in a 4-1 defeat to Watford.

The former Norway international returned to his homeland shortly after his dismissal. Since then, he's turned down several jobs as he ponders his next move.

Earlier this year, it was reported he'd started taking training sessions with Kristiansund's U14s side, his son Elijah's side.

The 49-year-old has already coached the team to victory alongside manager Per Magne Hals on a number of occasions.

Solskjaer's main mantra is to make training a positive environment for children who want to enjoy their football.

Per Nettavisen Sport, there was another visitor recently. Keane, one of Solskjaer's former United teammates, is said to have stood on the sidelines during a session.The Irishman is known for his no-nonsense demeanour and a rather frosty outlook on most things. His appearance is said to have shocked many who were in attendance.

Despite that, Keane was friendly with supporters at the session, even offering to pose for pictures and sign autographs.

Solskjaer and Keane played together at Old Trafford for nine years before Keane left in controversial circumstances in 2005.

Together, they won five Premier League titles and were part of United's famous Treble-winning side of 1999.

One supporter explained: "He was very nice. It is clear that it was fun to meet him. Roy Keane and Eric Cantona. They were the biggest heroes when I was young.

"He said it was an intimate and nice track. It goes without saying that it was great to stand with one of the greatest United legends of all time."

Solskjaer has kept his business private over the last year, even refusing to comment on why Keane was over in Norway.

He's yet to give an interview to a British outlet but is keen to return to management in the future.

United appointed Ralf Rangnick on an interim basis following Solskjaer's departure, but it yielded United's worst-ever Premier League points tally.

They've since hired Erik ten Hag permanently, who has taken United to fifth in the Premier League.
