Ole Bjørn Sundgot (born 21 March 1972) is a Norwegian former footballer who played as a striker, for Molde, Bradford City and Lyn. His brother is Arild Sundgot.

Playing career[edit]

Sundgot was born in Ulsteinvik and began his career at Hødd, before he joined Molde ahead of the 1991 season where he made his breakthrough, forming a striker partnership with Arild Stavrum and Ole Gunnar Solskjær. Solskjær famously moved to Manchester United while Sundgot spent a season on loan at English club Oldham Athletic before he was snapped up by Chris Kamara at Bradford City. He played up front with Swedish striker Rob Steiner. Sundgot scored six goals in his first season but just a couple of months into the 1997–98 season he moved back to Molde. From there he later moved to Lyn and Hønefoss.

Managing career[edit]

In 2008, he was hired as manager of Hønefoss, his last club as a player.

Personal life[edit]

Sundgot comes from a family of footballers, and is the son of former Hødd and Viking player Otto Sundgot and the brother of the former Lillestrøm player Arild Sundgot.[1]
