Henning Berg

Where is Henning Berg now?

Former Blackburn and Man United defender Henning Berg called time on his career in 2004 after a season in Scotland with Rangers.

Playing over 400 games over an 18-year period, Berg was the first person to win the Premier League title with two different clubs – once with Blackburn and twice with United.

He was also an important part of the talented Norway international side of the 1990’s winning 100 caps and featuring in the 1994 and 1998 FIFA World Cup finals as well as the 2000 UEFA European Championships.

Upon retiring from playing Berg was offered a managerial post back in his native Norway at top-tier side Lyn where he spent three years before moving to his former club Lillestrom in 2009.

Unfortunately after a string of poor results he was relieved of his position in 2011.

He then spent time working as a pundit on Norwegian television before joining former side Blackburn Rovers as their new manager replacing the sacked Steve Kean

Taking over an already struggling team he was sacked after 57 days after registering just one victory in 10 games.

In April 2013 he was awarded £2.25 million after taking the club to court for non-payment of wages.

Berg spent the remainder of 2013 as a scout for Norwich City until December when he was appointed as head coach role at Legia Warsaw.

A successful first season at the club saw his Legia Warsaw team win the league title but after a very slow to the 2015-16 season he was sacked with his team lying second in the league but 10 points off the pace.

In May 2016, Berg made a return to football management when he was appointed as head coach of Hungarian side Videoton.

Despite a great season where his side were challenging for the title until the very last weekend, he left at the end of season by mutual consent.

In June 2019 he was appointed in his current role as manager of Cypriot first division side AC Omonia
