Who is Östersunds FK manager Ian Burchnall?

Ian David Burchnall was born in Leicester, England on the 11th of February, 1983 and is the current manager of Östersunds FK. He didn’t play football before going into management, instead, he went into management from a young age during his time at Leeds University.

Burchnall joined the Leeds United and Bradford City coaching staffs where he worked in the youth academies of the clubs and because of his experience, he now holds a UEFA Pro coaching license.

In 2012, Ian Burchnall joined Norwegian side Sarpsborg 08 as an assistant manager to head coach Brian Deane. 2 years later, Burchnall joined another Norwegian club in Viking FK as an assistant manager to Kjell Jonevret, however, he was appointed as head coach of the club in 2016 due to Jonevret leaving for American side Orlando Pirates.

Ian Burchnall only lasted a year in the job as he was sacked on the 9th of November 2017 due to the club being relegated from the Norwegian first division: the Eliteserien. In 2018, Östersunds FK head coach Graham Potter brought in Ian Burchnall as his assistant manager, Potter knew Burchnall from his time at Leeds United.

In the Summer of 2018 after a hugely successful season where the club reached the round of 32 of the UEFA Europa League, Swansea City appointed Graham Potter as their head coach. This meant that Ian Burchnall was promoted to head coach of Östersunds FK. Burchnall finished the season with Östersunds FK and guided the club to a 6th placed finish.

The following season was less impressive with a 12th place finish in the Allsvenskan and the club was knocked out of the Svenska Cupen in the group stages. This was much less impressive than the previous season’s cup run where Östersunds FK reached the semi finals of the tournament under Graham Potter.

One reason for the underwhelming season, however, was down to the losses of both Saman Ghoddos and Ken Sema which brought in over $5m in transfer fees. Next season, the club will be hoping for better performances if Burchnall is to keep his job.
