We welcome Tom Dent back onto the podcast for an in-depth interview with Steve Wyss. Hear how he has transitioned from an OBOS Ligaen manager at Stjørdals-Blink to working under Jakob Michelsen as assistant manager at Ham Kam in the Eliteserien. We discuss and dissect their season, which ultimately saw the club escape relegation by finishing 13th. Hear the intricacies of coaching, adapting to the top level along with mental & physical challenges. We discuss the league as a whole and give our team of the year suggestions. Also looking ahead to the future with VAR coming into the Eliteserien for 2023, along with personal and club ambitions.
