Rising American Josh Gatt (who narrowly missed being called into the Gold Cup) just scored his first league goal for Molde FK. He is tearing it up under Solskjaer and the sky is the limit for him. Congrats Josh, keep up the great work.

Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has recommended two American youngsters for Sir Alex Ferguson to take on trial.
Solskjaer, currently in charge of Norwegian club FK Molde, believes his team’s youngsters Joshua Gatt and Sean Cunningham deserve a crack at Old Trafford.

The Molde manager moved back to Norway earlier this year after 15 years at United, in which he won the Treble as a player before winning the reserve league as manager.

The United hero is currently doing well with Molde – his side won the Norwegian league – and Solskjaer remains in contact with Ferguson.
Molde winger Gatt, 19, and 18-year-old left back Cunningham are regarded highly by Solskjaer, who has told United they should take a closer look at the duo.
