Leicester link in great Rosenborg win v. Ajax and Europa League qualification

DATE: 24.08.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Rosenborg are through to the group stages of the Europa League, after two great wins against last seasons finalists Ajax, who lost the final a few months ago to Man Utd

Former Arsenal and Nottingham Forest forward Nicklas Bendtner was massive in the game at Lerkendal, scoring one, and the other's came from newly signed forward Samuel Adegbenro.

Adegbenro made an instant impact when coming on in Amsterdam, scoring the only goal, and today as well scoring two beautiful goals against one of the best teams in Europe.

A fee in the region of 1 million was what Rosenborg paid for the Nigerian forward, which in Norway is a major amount to pay for a footballer. Bendtner has been steady progressing during the season and today showed his best for Rosenborg. He was signed on a free transfer.

So what has this to do with Leicester, maybe not much, but there is a link to talk a bit about. Viking manager at the moment, Ian Burchnall is born in Leicester, he has been working in Norwegian football since 2012.

Today's goalscorer Samuel Adegbenro was sold by Burchnall and Viking Stavanger just weeks ago to steady the ship financially. Today might think they have sold a bit early or for money that could easilly have been doubled, but they might have to wait until Rosenborg decides to sell.

Burchnall is of course a Leicester City fan, but he made his trade in football via clubs such as Leeds United and Bradford City. His first job in Norway was as an assistent to fromer Leicester City player Brian Deane, at Sarpsborg.

Burchnall and Deane build a great foundation at Sarpsborg who they established in the top flight and has grown to become one of the better teams in the league, currently 2nd with only Rosenborg in front of them.

After his time at Sarpsborg, Burchnall joined Viking as assistent to Kjell Jonevret, and when Jonevret was sacked Burchnall took over and is still in charge, despite a very problematic season, Viking still bottom, but only four points away from a play-off position.

Selling Adegbenro, who is Nigerian 21 year old forward / winger, was of course something Burchnall would have liked to avoid, but with heavy financial difficulties it was needed to make the sale of the talented player.

Burchnall most take credit for bringing forward such a young good player and today you saw the result with two fantastic goals against one of the best teams in Europe. Ajax will, for the first time since 1965, not be competing in Europe.

Another Englishman and former Birmingham City defender Graham Potter, who played against Leicester City on several occasions for his former clubs made a miracle this evening, taking Ostersund SK into the group stages of the Europa League.

Winning 2-0 against PAOK at home tonight and scoring one away made them go through on away goals. Amazing result and for a club competing on level four in Sweden six years ago, this is just amazing.

Potter took over the club in 2011 and have since climbed the divisions in Sweden and currently in a safe 8th position in the top flight in Sweden. Fun to follow the two Scandinavian teams this fall in the Europa League group stages.

Ajax and Leicester who last season reached the final of the Europa League and the quarter final of the Champions League are not there this season, with Ostersund and Rosenborg getting through. Great to see that the world of football still is full of surprises and 100 % unpredictable.
