(Raufoss – Sogndal 2–1) Promising Sogndal went on a rampage at Nammo Stadium, where the home team celebrated by playing the club song “Stao no pao” in the locker room after the match.
This made Eirik Bakke react strongly.
– They show no respect when they play “Stao no pao” in the locker room after the match. Low goals, he writes in an SMS to Sogn Avis, which is in a video of a harsh exchange between Raufoss coach Christian Johnsen and Sogndal coach Eirik Bakke.

The guests’ coach was not happy on the way home from Vestre Toten.
– Your assistant is screaming “fuck off” to me. Had I done that to him … It’s about having respect, thundered Eirik Bakke, who after receiving an answer from the Raufoss camp, followed up by saying:
– I hope they go to hell.
Eirik Bakke tells VG that he does not want to comment on the matter any further.
– Have told me about that matter. Lost 2–1. Bad day at work for both us and the judge. Next match, Bakke writes in a text message.

– We heard “Stao no pao” from Raufoss’ wardrobe. Then it slams a little, says Sogndal captain Sivert Mannsverk to Sogn Avis.
Raufoss captain Ole Kristian Lauvli confirms that the song was played in the locker room.
– I understand that it can be perceived as provocative. We’ve had a little thing with that. When we moved up in 2018, we listened to the Fredrikstad song. Last year we drove the “Stao no pao” song on the bus, so we could probably wait a few minutes this time as well, Lauvli says to VG.
– But they should have: It’s a very good song. It is captivating, he says.
– What do you think about Bakke “hoping you go to hell”?
– He will be responsible for that. They probably have frustration after the loss. It’s fun with a little push after the match, so it goes well, we do not put so much into it.
VG has not succeeded in getting an answer from Raufoss’ coach or general manager of the club, Bent Dalby, but to Oppland Arbeiderblad he calls Bakke’s behavior “unprofessional”.
– I was there by chance, and think it was very unprofessional of Sogndal’s coach. I do not think that is the way it should be. If he was angry, it should have come out in the locker room or on the bus home.
– If things are to be taken up, it should be done in a real way, instead of when you have to say it to your colleague and on the public stage. I also do not think he has reason to be so upset. The only one who received a yellow card for his behavior on the bench was Sogndal’s coach, says Bent Dalby.
Raufoss took the lead 2-0 after an own goal by Andreas Hoven and a goal by Filip Brattbakk, who is the son of Harald Martin Brattbakk.
Sivert Mannsverk reduced ten minutes before the end, but then it was too late. Earlier, both Kristoffer Hoven and Tomas Kristoffersen had their goals canceled for offside, to which Eirik Bakke reacted. He also incurred a yellow card after the latter.
– I do not understand it, but that’s how it is. When judges are so arrogant that you can not have a tone with them … They must tolerate that we react a little, and I had good contact with fourth judges. But maybe it’s because I’m who I am? He said it was the fifth time I complained, that’s the dumbest thing I heard. Maybe if he had started judging properly. Everything went their way and we got two canceled goals. They must tolerate that we react a little, says Bakke according to Sogn Avis.
Raufoss’ victory, however, means that it is unlikely that Eirik Bakke “gets what he wants”. There are ten points from Raufoss in 8th place and down to Øygarden in relegation place.
