The details


Kåre Hedley Ingebrigtsen (born 11 November 1965) is a Norwegian professional football manager and former player, who played as a midfielder. He was most recently in charge of Cypriot First Division side APOEL before being sacked in February 2020.

Ingebrigtsen was nicknamed "Bruttern" ("the brother") during his career at Rosenborg, which was coined by friend and former teammate Jahn Ivar Jakobsen.

Club career

Ingebrigtsen played for Rosenborg, Lillestrøm, Manchester City, Strømsgodset, Byåsen and Malvik.

He made 17 appearances for Manchester City, scoring three goals, all of them in an FA Cup match against Leicester City on 8 January 1994.

International career

Ingebrigtsen earned 23 caps for Norway. He netted on his debut on 7 November 1990 in a 3–1 friendly away victory over Tunisia.

Managerial career

In December 2004, Ingebrigtsen took charge of Rosenborg youth side. He became the manager of 2. divisjon side Ranheim in September 2006, before returning to Rosenborg in October 2007, where he acted as an assistant.


At the end of the year, Ingebrigtsen was appointed as manager of Bodø/Glimt. He remained at the club until July 2011 when he left his post as manager due to poor results.

In April 2012, Ingebrigtsen took a short break from management to work as a car salesman. He later worked as an assistant for Viking from July 2012 until July 2014.


In the summer of 2014, Rosenborg were on the look out for an interim manager after sacking Per Joar Hansen, and they turned to Ingebrigtsen.

After a poor start with three losses and only one win in his first four league matches, their form improved and they finished the season with nine wins out of ten matches in second place, thus qualifying for an UEFA Europa League qualifying spot. As a result, Ingebrigtsen was offered the managerial job on a permanent basis.

During his time at Rosenborg, Ingebrigtsen guided them to three straight league titles, two Norwegian Football Cup titles and two Norwegian Super Cup titles as well as qualifying for the group stages of the UEFA Europa League twice in three seasons.


On 6 May 2019, Ingebrigtsen signed a two-year contract with Belgian First Division A side Oostende.


Kåre Ingebritsen signed for APOEL 27 December 2019. He was sacked 11 February 2020.
