Jørn Andersen (sometimes written Jörn, born 3 February 1963) is a Norwegian-born football manager and former player. He was manager of Karlsruher SC in the 2. Bundesliga, until his sacking on 26 March 2012.

Club career[edit]

Norway[edit]

Born in Fredrikstad, Jørn Andersen's career started at local team Østsiden where he remained until 1982. Subsequently, he moved to Fredrikstad and netted seven goals in 43 Norwegian Premier League appearances. The striker was transferred to Vålerenga ahead of the 1985 season. Andersen was able to score 23 goals in just 22 matches for the Oslo side.

Germany[edit]

In 1985, 1. FC Nürnberg signed the Norwegian. In 78 matches Andersen scored 28 goals before he moved to Eintracht Frankfurt. In 1990 Andersen became the first foreign player to be top goalscorer in a season with 18 goals in the Bundesliga.[1] In 1990–91 Andersen played for Fortuna Düsseldorf and returned to the Frankfurt side. After that spell he joined Hamburger SV (1994–95) and Dynamo Dresden to play in the Bundesliga.[2]

Switzerland[edit]

From Dresden, Andersen headed to Switzerland and FC Zürich in 1995, but was not successful as he scored only twice in 33 appearances. After the 1997–98 season he left FC Lugano to join FC Locarno.

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Norway in 1985 and earned 27 caps, scoring five goals.[3] His last international match was a European Championship qualifying match against Hungary in October 1990, coming on as a substitute for Jahn Ivar Jakobsen.

Managing career[edit]

Andersen became as youth manager at FC Luzern and returned to Germany again to manage the then-second tier team Rot-Weiß Oberhausen from 2003 until 2004. After that spell he assisted Horst Köppel at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Andersen claimed in the Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang in September 2006 that he had several talks with Joachim Löw to become assistant manager for Germany. The contacts were confirmed by Löw. Andersen says he did not get the position due to his nationality.[citation needed]

In May 2007, he signed to Greek top-flight team Skoda Xanthi to manage them from 2007–08 on, but in June 2007 the contract was dissolved for private reasons.

In late 2007, he signed for 2. Bundesliga strugglers Kickers Offenbach, but was unable to save them from relegation.

On 20 May 2008, he signed a two-year deal with 2. Bundesliga outfit FSV Mainz, and under his reign the team achieved promotion to the Bundesliga. Despite the team's success, Andersen was fired on 3 August 2009.

Mid December 2010, he was named manager of the Greek Super League team Larissa.[4] After on 24 days in office, where the team lost three league matches and was knocked out of the cup competition, without scoring a single goal, he was let go.[5]

Six months later, Andersen returned to Germany take charge of second division side Karlsruher SC.[6]

Personal[edit]

He is the son of handball player Bjørg Andersen.[7]

Andersen became a German citizen in 1993. His son Niklas currently plays for lower-tier club SG Wattenscheid 09.
