Ronny Deila has been linked with the Norwegian job as the squad go on a losing spree.
They were disgraced by Germany 3-0, and were defeated by Azerbaijan 1-0. Current manager of the national team Per-Matthias Hogmo is under intense pressure from all quarters with the loses in both World Cup qualifying games.
Former Celtic coach Ronny Deila is likely the replacement as the country seeks a change in fortunes ahead of Russia 2018. Norway is poised to face San Marino at home, and the game seems to be the major decider if Hogmo is to remain. Aside Deila, former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar and Stale Solbakken are among three possible replacements if Hogmo is fired.
Deila left the Scottish side after two difficult years at Parkhead. The former Hoops manager won the Premiership two times and also lifted a League Cup but due to lack of European success, he was dismissed. A semi final loss to Rangers in the Scottish Cup contributed to his dismissal as well. He is set to take charge of Norwegian club Valerenga in the New Year. Despite his experiences, there are many obstacles hindering him from the managerial role.
Denmark international coach Age Hareide backed Solbaken, a former Wolves boss, to get the job ahead of Deila.
“Stale Solbakken has done a fantastic job with FC Copenhagen. If he wants it, Norway should take him, definitely,”
“Look at what he has done in Copenhagen. He brought them back again, has been accomplished in the transfer market and built a team that is very functional and strong,” he added.
However, if Hogmo can quickly turn the fate of Norway around in the next few games, he might be able to save himself from immediate sack, but the Norwegian apex Football body will likely find a replacement for the World Cup tournament, if they can make it.
