Coach-solitaire: Hareide-dream hangs in a thin thread

After the EM for the summer he is done in Denmark. But Åge Hareide hope that he can avoid to go unemployed for very long.

In the home member state Norway is considering fodboldforbundet, whether or not the national coach for the Danish national team is the man who shall manage the Norwegian national team. An unresolved situation can, however, thwart it for Åge Hareide.

Right now, keeps Norway's Football association again to contact Hareide, when one wants to clarify the contract situation with the current national coach, Lars Lagerbäck, which is the first choice.

Åge Hareide confirms as also opposite to the Norwegian VG, that he has not yet heard from fodboldbosserne in Norway, why he should arm themselves with a bit of impatience, if the coach-manager position in the home country is a job, he dreams to take over.

In Norway rains fodboldforbundet to come forward to clarify Lagerbäck before the new year, when his contract expires.

And here goes the saying that the 71-year-old Lagerbäck is the number one priority.

"We believe that Lars should be allowed to continue the project he has started with the Norwegian national team. He has had good results. Åge has also been the national coach in the past, but we are extremely happy with the way Lars is emerging as a leader, and he has also developed the national team. It has spoken to his advantage, and makes we want an extension with him," says fodboldpræsident Terje Svendsen to VG

Åge Hareide has uttered, that he certainly might be interested in thank the yes to landstrænerjobbet in Norway, if he were to get the offer.

"Yes, absolutely," said Hareide last week to NRK, where he, however, remained realistic possibility:

"Now I think Lagerbäck will extend. I hope so. He has been very good for Norway and can certainly be good in two more years."

Åge Hareide got until the summer to know that DBU does not want to extend his contract, which expires after the tournament.

instead, DBU made an agreement with Kasper Hjulmand, a decision Hareide certainly not have been agreed to in which he openly has said on several occasions.
