Stig-Inge Bjornebye

Where is Stig Inge Bjornebye now?

Noted for his precise crossing from the flanks, former Liverpool star Stig Inge Bjornebye had to retire in 2003 at the age of 33 whilst playing for Blackburn Rovers due to a succession of injuries, one of which nearly resulted in the amputation of one of his feet.

Bjornebye returned to the game within the same year in a non playing capacity to take up the role as assistant manager of the Norwegian national team.

He stayed in this role for three years before taking on the manager’s position at IK Start who play in the Norwegian Premier League.

Although he had a successful first season, the second season was a disaster and after a string of poor results he was eventually sacked in 2007.

After spending time as manager of youth and children’s football development at the Norwegian FA, Bjornebye joined Rosenberg in March 2015 as their new sporting director.
