Ole Gunnar Solskjær completely smashes other Norwegian sports names in the media talk in Norway so far this year. Petter Northug is doing well despite his resignation.
Manchester United manager Solskjær is close to 19,000 media releases so far in 2019. Closest to him are cross-country skiers Johannes Høsflot Klæbo and Therese Johaug.
Northug has not been active in cross country for almost a year, but still comes in 13th place. Chess master Magnus Carlsen is number seven and holds a strong position.
Media monitor Retriever has prepared the overview for NTB, and the number of reviews has been updated up to the end of last week.
Eight of the ten most talked about are men. A similar list was recently published in Sweden. There, cross-country skier Charlotte Kalla topped, and with her were five other women in the top-10 rankings over Swedish sports profiles.
“In Norway, women and men must fight against the global name Solskjær. So, a female first place is currently out of reach here at home. That being said, I think it’s nice to see that one of our biggest female cross-country stars gets at least as much publicity as the males,” says head of analysis in Retriever, Guro Lindebjerg, to NTB.
