Another title for Rosenborg BK
Rosenborg BK coach Nils Arne Eggen said he would “leave it to the youngsters to celebrate” after a 1-0 win against Tromsø IL secured his 14th title in charge of the Trondheim side.
Rosenborg BK clinched their 22nd Norwegian title on Oct. 24 thanks to a 1-0 win against Tromsø IL which came courtesy of Rade Prica’s goal with 11 minutes remaining.
The Trondheim side were expected to retain their crown in style this year and have not disappointed, remaining unbeaten all season and ending any lingering suspense with two fixtures to go. Victory against Tromsø – their 19th of the campaign – means that the UEFA Europa League contenders now lie eight points clear of nearest challengers Vålerenga Fotball and can therefore not be caught.
It was former coach Erik Hamrén who first made Rosenborg such a tough nut to crack prior to his departure to take over the Sweden national team in May. Nils Arne Eggen, the most successful coach in the history of the Norwegian league, assumed the reins and has seamlessly picked up from where his predecessor left off.
