LEGENDARY Norwegian manager Nils Arne Eggen has passed away, 高齢者 80.
The former Rosenborg and Norway national team coach is one of his country’s greatest ever footballing icons.
He coached Rosenborg for 23 years across six spells between 1971 そして 2010.
And Eggen also took charge of Norway between 1974 そして 1977, narrowly missing out on qualification for the 1978 ワールドカップ.
Ex-Norwegian footballer Jan Aage Fjortoft posted a touching tribute on social media which read: “One of the greatest legend of Norwegian football ever, Nils Arne Eggen, 死んだ.
“The “Sir Alex” of Rosenborg who had success in the Champions League with nearly only “home-made” players.
“A fantastic personality that I loved to be around. RIP。”
And Rosenborg BK also paid homage to their former manager with a statement saying: “It was with sorrow that Rosenborg today received the message that the club’s greatest legend is dead.
“Nils Arne fell asleep quietly until Wednesday night with his immediate family by his side.”
