The Norwegian, who had one good season for Manchester United in 1997, entertains himself by watching re-runs of Noel’s House Party and discussing Ireland’s domination of the Eurovision Song Contest.
A source within Cardiff confirmed they are embarrassed by the situation.
The source said: “When Ole first arrived he was brandishing a mobile phone which looked like a shoe box. He kept saying that he was trying to phone Kevin Keegan about signing a Newcastle forward.
“And that’s what it’s been like ever since. He refuses to accept that we are now in the 21st century. He doesn’t even know about Gluten, Adele, the War on Terror or even broadband internet.
“He actually checks Ceefax even though it no longer exists.”
Cardiff owner Vincent Tan is alarmed by Solskjaer’s delusional state.
He said: “If he signs anymore players from Norway I will personally hold him down and tattoo a treasure map on the small of his back and then dump him off the coast of Somalia. Then he’ll know what fucking year it is.”
