His original name is Kenneth Heiner Christiansen, his wife's name is Møller, which he decided to use as his own. In 1994–1995 he played in Hungary, in Ferencvárosi TC, the Hungarian fans know him as Kenneth Christiansen.

Aged 30, Heiner-Møller broke his leg and had to finish his career as a footballer.

He coached the Danish women's national team from 2006 until 2013, when he stood down to take over as chief executive of Team Danmark.[1]

At the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup Heiner-Møller and Danish players accused the Chinese hosts of harassment and covert surveillance prior to China's first round match against Denmark. China's Swedish coach Marika Domanski-Lyfors and her assistant Pia Sundhage were unaware of the incidents and Heiner-Møller absolved them of any blame, although he refused to shake hands after the match.[2]

On 8 January 2018 he was named head coach of the Canada Women's National Team.[3]
