Chima helped Norwegian heavyweights Molde FK to three of their four league titles (Eliteserien 2011, 2012, 2014) and also guided them to two Norwegian Cup (2013, 2014) triumphs during his first stint with the club between 2010 and 2015.
The 30-year old was Molde’s top scorer with 13 goals to his name in 2013, also celebrating two of his three league titles with current Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær who was in charge of Molde from 2011-2014.
