Scarves, hats, Horns, and T-Shirts, preferably the one with the gentle face on a black Background, including the white lettering: "Baby-faced Assassin".

The Killer with the Baby face has shot Manchester United in may of 1999 to win the Champions League, to the late 2:1 in the final against FC Bayern München. Almost 20 years after the spectacular night of Barcelona, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shoots no more goals, and is as successful as never before. In December, he replaced Jose Mourinho in the dugout. Of the following eleven Games United have lost none and won.

Where was the decision for the Norwegians was a Gamble. His experience as a head coach was reduced to a failed stint with Cardiff City and a continuous commitment to its international third-rate hometown club Molde FK. But sometimes football seems to be in the third Millennium easier than it want to have tables of the analysts with their Tactics is true. For Solskjaer, it is enough obvious that he encounters in the cabin the right tone. Paul Pogba is approximately shuttled among Mourinho between the bench and the stands. Under Solskjaer, he has scored eight goals and five assists. "The coach wants us to attack again, and that's exactly what we do," said Pogba. "We are Manchester United", a team that nobody should underestimate. Not in England and not beyond.

in The biggest game of his career, he has first of all sat on the Bank and watch the FC Bayern incited his colleagues on the lawn of the Camp Nou. The people of Munich are clearly the superior team, you go to an early free-kick from Mario Basler in the lead and seem to have everything under control. Manchester's coach Alex Ferguson tried it only with the goal for the 33-year-old Teddy Sheringham. Solskjaer will have to be patient. Ten minutes still to play, because he can finally for Andy Cole in the space. Ten minutes until the most curious injury time of all previous and probably future times.

Legendary Finaltor against Bayern

Bayern have taken through Mehmet Scholl and Carsten Jancker still posts and crossbar. The game must be decided, in addition to the Munich-based Bank, you can open the boxes with the shirts on which is written: "Champions League-winner 1999 – Bayern Munich." Referee Pierluigi Collina imposed a stoppage time of three minutes, but already nearly expired.

One last corner. David Beckham makes on the execution. Manchester goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel rushes forward to his ten colleagues, and at once not agreed to by the Association. Schmeichel jumps to the Ball, the flippert then through the penalty area to the feet of Ryan Giggs, whose shot extended Sheringham in the goal. 1:1, General Munich horror, but Collina to whistle again. It is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who fought against Samuel Kuffour the next corner. Again, Beckham's crosses, this time on Sheringhams head, Solskjaer holds the foot in between, and the game is rotated. A last Munich attack attempt ends up in Somewhere.

luck would have it that the two late scorers for the doping sample will be drawn and there is plenty of tipsy on Bavarian leader Stefan Effenberg meeting. The magazine "11 friends" listed: "Sheringham and Solskjaer excrete with the precision as before, your Joker-Job after coming on as a substitute – and are gone."
