Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be featured in the next version of FIFA video games as a “Hero” player, available starting in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.

The new concept of player cards features hero players from specific moments in history, pairing with the traditional Icon cards to add more fan favorite players from the past.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s player card appears to be an homage to his historic super sub appearance in the 1998/99 UEFA Champions League Final, in which he scored the winning goal in the dying seconds against Bayern Munich to complete the Treble. At 86 overall it’s unlikely that his player card will walk into most well-rounded teams, but will likely be a fine addition as a super sub or collectors item for fans looking for Manchester United-based squads.
