SARPSBORG / OSLO (VG) Despite interest from other clubs, Kristiansund coach Christian Michelsen will, according to VG’s information, remain on Nordmøre.

Instead, it was the Swede Stefan Billborn (49) who was presented as the new coach for the Sarpings on Friday.
YMCA Oslo’s Jørgen Isnes has also been in the picture as Lars Bohinen’s heir in Sarpsborg.
When asked by VG’s whether it is correct that Michelsen and Isnes have said no, sports manager Thomas Berntsen answers:
– It is true that there have been several candidates on the list, but who has said what – I will not say anything about that.
Christian Michelsen has not responded to VG’s inquiries in connection with this case.
