Oslo, Norway:

Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he will continue as manager of the Norwegian club Molde, ending talks with Aston Villa about becoming the club's new manager.

Solskjaer told a news conference on Saturday that he is still on contract with Molde for another two years and currently isn't "on the look-out for a new job."

The 39-year-old Solskjaer was lined up to replace Alex McLeish at Villa.

Solskjaer scored 128 goals in 367 matches for United, including one against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final that United won.

He retired in 2007 after failing to recover from a knee injury. He coached United's reserve team before taking over Molde in 2010.
