Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hilariously decided to "fine himself" after his Manchester United press conference was interrupted twice, by his own mistake.

Solskjaer was answering questions ahead of United's Europa League final clash against Villarreal, when his phone began ringing loudly. He quickly silenced it, only for it to start ringing again just a few seconds later, prompting sheepish laughter from the United coach.

"Sorry, that's my bad here, my phone's ringing," said Solskjaer with an embarrassed chuckle.

"Yeah, that's a fine! I'll take that one," he added, before telling the journalist he could start the question again.

And fans had a hearty laugh on social media, debating what the phone calls could have been about.

Members of the press and even players have been fined in the past for disrupting press conferences, and clearly Solskjaer had not followed protocol and was all too willing to own up the fine coming his way.
