The current Denmark manager Åge Hareide was born in Hareid, Norway 1953. His is a name that will be familiar to football fans across both Scandinavia and the United Kingdom having spent his playing career with a number of teams across the two regions.

A defender by trade, Hareide began his playing days at Norweigen side Hødd where he would make 37 appearances at centre back over a five year period. After this half-decade spell, Hareide would choose to move clubs. This decision would take him to Molde, one of the biggest teams in his native country. Molde would turn out to be the club which Hareide spent the most time with  - he spent six years in his first spell with the club. During this time, Hareide would become, for a defender at least, a prolific goalscorer; he scored 21 times in just shy of a century of appearances for Molde, giving him a goals to games ratio of over one in five.

Molde would always remain in Hareide's heart, he would later return to the club in the twilight of his playing career and he would also have two stints as manager of the Eliteserien side. But, after 11 years playing in Scandanavia, Hareide felt it was time for a new challenge. He caught the attention of a number of English clubs among them was Manchester City. Hareide signed for the Sky Blues in 1981 and would spend a season with the team before moving on again, this time to Carrow Road and Norwich City. In total, Hareide spent four seasons in England, playing 64 times and scoring twice.

At the age of 31, Hareide felt the time was right to move back to his homeland - Molde welcomed him back with open arms and he would play 74 more times for the club before hanging up his boots at the age of 34. In total, Hareide made 266 league appearances in his career, scoring 35 times in the process. He also had success on the international stage too; he made half a century of appearances for Norway, it might have been many more but Norway failed to qualify for any of the major international tournaments in this time.

Toward the end of his playing career, Hareide was appointed player-manager of Molde. He would spend two years in this position before deciding to call time on his days as a player in order to focus solely on the managerial side of the game. In total, Hareide would spend ten years as manager of the club. It would have been longer had Hareide not taken a two-year sabbatical from the game in 1991. The highlight of this spell was undoubtedly their Norweigan Football Cup triumph in the 1993/94 seasons. This was the first honour of Hareide's career, as either a player or a manager - it would prove to be the first of many.

His successes with Molde would lead him to be appointed head Helsingborgs IF. This was Hareide's first role outside of Norway and his brief time with the Swedish club was a glittering success. In two seasons, Helsingborgs won the Svenska Cupen, Sweden's premier cup competition, and the Allsvenskan, the nation's top league.

Following this, in 2000, he moved to Brøndby IF in Denmark. Here he stayed for two campaigns, winning the Danish Superliga in the second. This made him the only manager to have won the leagues in all three Scandinavian countries. He added to this continental dominance by winning both the league and the cup with Rosenborg BK in 2003.

Given his incredible success within Scandinavia, it was a natural progression for Hareide to be named as manager of Norway national team in 2004. It was not a successful time for Hareide however as he failed to qualify his home nation for any of the international tournaments.

After a brief spell at Örgryte IS, Hareide left to pursue a more attractive project with Viking. He would stay with Viking for three seasons. Despite his best efforts however, he was unable to lead them past mid-table in the league and was sacked in 2012.

He briefly held the position of caretaker manager at his old club Helsingborg before deciding to retire. He eventually reversed this position two years later in 2014 and returned to manage Swedish side Malmö FF. Here, he enjoyed something of a career renaissance as he won the league and cup double and was named manager of the year for the first time.

Now, Hareide is the manager of Denmark, a position he has held for three years. He has been relatively successful so far - they qualified for the 2018 World Cup where they reached the knockout stages for the fifth time.
