Gunnar Halle

Where is Gunnar Halle now?

After an 11-year spell playing in the English leagues, Gunnar Halle returned to his native Norway to play for Lillestrom and then Aurskog in a player/coach capacity.

He finally retired from playing in 2004 when he joined Lillestrom as an assistant manager.

Mostly remembered for his five years at Oldham Athletic where he played in over 200 matches, Halle also played for Bradford City, Leeds United and Wolves during his time in England.

He was also an important member of the Norway international side in the 1990’s winning 64 caps and representing them at the 1994 and 1998 FIFA World Cup finals.

Halle spent two seasons at Lillestrom working with former Manchester City player Uwe Rosler as head coach until they were sacked in 2006 but they Norwegian side Viking just two weeks later.

After a couple of seasons at Viking, he moved to Lyn as assistant manager before a promotion to first team manager in the summer of 2009.

Unfortunately the club went bankrupt in 2010 and he ended up joining up with Rosler once more at Molde as assistant coach until the end of the season.

After a spell assisting with the coaching of the Norway women’s national side he joined Norwegian second division side Strommen as assistant manager in 2013.

He was then promoted to manager after six months in but left at the end of 2015 to work with the younger age groups in the Norway international setup.

Halle has since been involved with all of the age groups from under 15’s to under 19’s.
