Career[edit]

Kippe started his career playing amateur football for Kolbotn, but moved to top-flight side Lillestrøm at the age of 19 to play professionally. At the end of the 1998 season Kippe was signed by English Premier League club Liverpool. At Anfield he was restricted to just two substitute appearances in the League Cup against Hull City[1] and Grimsby Town.[2] Kippe instead spent time out on loan at Stoke City where he linked up with a number of Scandinavian players.[3] He played 20 times for Stoke in 1999–2000 scoring against Preston North End and returned in 2000–01 where he played 24 times.[3] Kippe returned to Norway in 2002 and re-signed for Lillestrøm where he was made club captain and led the team to victory in the 2007 Norwegian Football Cup Final.[3]
