Eli Landsem was hired as coach in the autumn of 2009, and the contract expires 31.12.2012.
– We have had a thorough evaluation process, and dialogue with the coach. In view of this, we agreed not to extend the agreement, says premier league manager Nils Johan Semb to fotball.no.
Landsem led Norway to the World Cup finals in Germany in 2011 and the European Championship finals in Sweden in 2013.
– As a coach, I am addicted to have broad support. It is disappointing that the evaluation process shows that I do not have the wide support, but I must take the consequences. I want my players for coming and good luck with the championship in Sweden, says Eli Landsem to fotball.no.
– After a slow start in the European Championship qualifiers last year, we are pleased that the women’s national team secured EM square. We are pleased that Eli has led Norway to two playoffs. When we are not able to go further, it is on the basis of the evaluation and a long term plan with the World Cup in Canada in 2015 and the Olympics in Brazil in 2016, said Semb.
The process of hiring a new coach will begin immediately, and will be led by top football manager Nils Johan Semb.
