Stating that this tour is not only a “memorable moment” for fans but also for him. “I have been eager to visit the country and experience its footballing culture. I am deeply grateful for the warm welcome I have received in Bengaluru, and eagerly anticipate meeting fans in Delhi and Mumbai,” Solskjaer said in an official statement shared by the organisers.

“I have had the privilege of experiencing football’s magic on both sides of the touchline. So, it is always a delight to be able to reminisce about those last-minute goals and unforgettable victories with the fans.
