Manchester United ace plans new eco-home

Manchester United striker-turned coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has submitted plans to knock down a cottage in Cheshire to make way for a state-of-the-art eco-home.

Norway international Solskjaer has submitted plans to Macclesfield council for the home, which will include heavy natural insulation to minimise its energy wastage, energy-efficient ground source heat pumps and low-volume flush to limit water usage.

The plans for the proposed two-storey manor house, which has been conceived by Manchester-based planners Indigo, also include a games room, a separate swimming pool building and en-suite bedrooms.

If approved the home would go up if place of a 50-year old cottage in Knutsford, which Solskjaer bought for £1.8 million last year.

Solskjaer retired as a player two months ago after a long battle with a persistent injury sustained celebrating his equalising goal in Manchester United's famous 1999 Champions League victory.
