Ole Gunnar Solskjaer declined to comment after a woman allegedly raped by one of his former Molde players during his time with the Norwegian club said he was “unsuitable to manage Manchester United.”
Solskjaer was questioned about the ongoing court case on Friday and told reporters: “I think I can only answer what I have done through the club. This is a matter that runs through the legal system in Norway, you have to respect that legal route there. “
When he was pushed again, the British boss added: “I have just answered the answer. I understand how difficult this situation is, you don’t want anyone to be in such a situation and every part that is involved in that case is not happy, but that is my answer. “

Babacar Sarr, 28, who signed Solskjaer for Molde in 2016, only a few months after the police investigated a complaint against him, is confronted with allegations of numerous rapes and is now a fugitive from the country who left the country after ending his deal to play Russia and Saudi Arabia – two countries with no extradition treaty with Norway.
Solskjaer had controversially continued to play Sarr for Molde during a May 2017 investigation into claims that the midfielder had non-consensual sex with a woman while she slept after a night of alcoholic parties. Solskjaer said at the time of Sarr’s trial that he had no intention of implying the innocence of the player.
One of Sarr’s accusers told The Telegraph that Solskjaer is ‘unsuitable’ to manage United.

“I don’t think he has the values to manage a huge football club – or no people at all,” she said.
‘You have to have good values to raise good players. These are people who are stars. They can do anything. So if you have such a person to look up to, I think you’re a bit f *****. “
Sarr has denied any misconduct in all rapes against him.
