Premier League is back and so is ‘the baby-faced assassin’ Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Ole who has been married to Silje Solskjær since 1974 manages Manchester United in the English league.
After mixed results last season, he has a lot to prove to his fans and the critics. United finished sixth last season. This came after a series of defeats at the later stages of the competition.
His team will face Chelsea in the opening game of this season. Chelsea who is now being managed by the club captain Frank Lampard had a decent pre-season.
Fans have compared the status of Ole with that of Frank. Both players are legends for their team and both have a relatively short managerial experience.
Come Sunday, we will know who comes out on top. The game is being held in Old Trafford. This will surely provide an edge to United. However, we won’t be surprised if Chelsea runs havoc at Old Trafford under their new passionate manager.
Here, we will discuss in brief regarding Ole’s wife and her career so far.
Silje Solskjaer Age
Silje Solskjaer is 45 years old. She was born in 1974.
Her husband is 46 years of age. Additionally, he was born in Kristiansund, Norway.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Wife
Most people who watch the premier league will know about Silje. She is the wife of Ole Gunnar Solskjær. The pair began dating in 1992.
They broke off after Ole joined the military. However, they reconciled later and tied the knot in 2004. Their wedding took place in Florida.
Silje Solskjaer Net Worth Details
There are no details available about Silje’s present net worth. There is very little information regarding what she does for a living.
Her husband, however, makes an impressive sum of money through his profession. He has an estimated net worth of £1.9million. Additionally, he has earned £20million throughout his career.
These amounts seem completely justified. He is the manager of one of the biggest teams in England. This suggests that he makes adequate earnings as a manager.
