– I only have good memories from the time in Bergen, and I look forward to seeing everyone at the Stadium again, says Lars Arne Nilsen to NRK.
On Saturday, he is again on the sidelines at Brann Stadium, but this time in training clothes with the Aalesund logo.
He was fired from Brann in August, after the match against Vålerenga in the 12th round. Brann was Brann in eighth place on the table.
13 games later, Brann has become entangled in the relegation battle.
On the phone from Ålesund, Nilsen is reluctant to comment on what made him lose his job.
– I do not want to talk about that. Now it’s important to focus on the future with AaFK.
– But would Brann have been in the relegation battle if you still had our coach?
– I do not intend to comment on that, he says.
Hope Brann manages
The bottom team AaFK seems bottomless lost at the bottom of the Elite Series. If they win in Bergen on Saturday, they can contribute to taking Brann down a division.
But the old coach does not hope so.
– I really hope Brann manages. It is important both for me and for Norwegian football. But tomorrow we will do everything to win.
He does not want to go into what he thinks is the reason why Brann failed to establish himself as a top team under his leadership, but says there are obviously things he would have done differently in his six years at the club.
– But this is not the time to be wise afterwards. Now the most important thing is the project I started here in Ålesund.
Return to the Stadium
As a Brann coach, he experienced great success and adversity. Lars Arne Nilsen trained Brann for promotion, silver and bronze in the Elite Series.
He claims he has not thought about how the return to the Stadium will be hosted.
– I hope and believe that I will be well received by the audience. I’m a little disappointed if I do not, and hope it is not “bad feelings”.
– Are you satisfied with the job you did in Brann?
– Hehe … almost others have to answer that, he says.
