It has been eight long years since Stale Solbakken was last in Cologne. Since his separation from 1. FC Köln in April 2012, his path has not taken him to the city on the Rhine. Now the Europa League tournament with the game against Manchester United ensures a return and memories of the time.

"Cologne is still very beautiful", laughs Solbakken, "my whole family loves this city." He has long since come to terms with the fact that his work there as coach of 1. FC Köln (July 2011 to April 2012) was unsuccessful and he remembers with a smile: "It was a bit restless back then," he says, "and" he has that much get "it's still like that." The time after that led him into calmer and more successful waters. A brief engagement with Wolverhampton Wanderers was followed by a return to FC Copenhagen, with whom he has been three times Danish champions since then. In the past season it was "only" enough to finish second, Solbakken explains why: "We lacked stability and there were also problems with injuries."

We are a bad Championship team.' Solbakken ' s methods were openly questioned by Wolves' players during a half-hour inquest into the defeat by A bumper crowd was then forced to stomach McCarthy' s triumphant return as Ipswich Town served up a 2-0 defeat on the Black Country club three days later.

Solbakken was reluctant to make any rash predictions about Wolves returning to the Barclays Premier League at the first attempt following relegation from the top flight. I don't think it is a brave appointment. He is a proven manager, has won countless silverware and his record is outstanding."

Red Star, Celtic, Kiev and Basaksehir fell by the wayside prevailed and is now in the quarterfinals.

The opponent from Manchester has a very old friend on the line. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Solbakken played almost 50 international matches for Norway together, including the 1998 World Cup in France and the 2000 European Championship in Belgium and Holland. Spicy: When Solskjaer acquired his license in 2011, he sat in on Solbakken, with whom he has a friendship.

She has a break tonight in Müngersdorf. With the game against the English, Solbakken is building a remarkable record: It will be his 43rd Europa League game with FC Copenhagen. Only Unay Emery has a similar record with 39 appearances for Sevilla FC on the sideline: "But he won the final three times," laughs Solbakken, "I'd swap."

Solbakken doesn't sound sad. If he took anything with him from his time in Cologne, it was: "It comes as it comes."
