Rosenborg in More Meltdown as Players Release Statement About Sacked Manager

Rosenborg appear in more meltdown after their first team squad released a statement criticising the club’s decision to sack manager Kåre Ingebrigtsen.

The Norwegians travel to Glasgow to play Celtic this coming Wednesday in the first leg of their Champions League second round qualifier.

But they haven’t had the best preparation for the tie after struggling to beat Icelandic minnows Valur in the previous round and then sacking their manager yesterday.

Rosenborg needed a controversial late penalty to spare their blushes and advance to the games against Celtic thanks to a 3-2 aggregate score.

Club chiefs obviously weren’t happy about that decision though, last night taking the decision to sack Ingebrigtsen.

That’s a decision the players don’t agree with, as they stated in a statement earlier today.

Per‘s Christian Wulff, the Rosenborg players asked the board to reinstate Ingebrigtsen after they were informed of the sacking.

Part of their statement, per, read: “We vehemently disagree with the board’s decision to sack Kåre (Ingebrigtsen) and Erik (Hoftun)….As a group we asked the board to reinstate Kåre and Erik, but they refused.”

Now Rosenborg are faced with a new manager and an unhappy squad going into two huge games against Celtic and that must be seen as a boost to the Hoops and their Champions League ambitions.
