Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has snubbed Aston Villa to stay with Molde, the Norwegian club with which he still has two years to run on his contract.
The 39-year-old had talks with Villa on Friday, the English Premier League club managerless after Alex McLeish was fired.
"I have not had any offers," Solskjaer told a press conference on Saturday. "I'm not looking for another job.
"In football, and in life in general, things turn up that you have to make decisions about. I have a contract for two more years and I'll stand by that."
Solskjaer returned to Norway late Friday to learn that Molde's billionaire backer Kjell Inge Rokke had pulled the plug on his company's 20-year support, which included building the club a new stadium in the late 1990s, as a result of the Villa talks.
