Simen Axel Stamsø Møller (born 6 September 1988) is a Norwegian football forward, currently playing for Kjelsås, as well as a football commentator on national television.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

He started his youth career in Lille Tøyen, before he transferred to the local talent club Skeid, at the age of 10. In Skeid he was overshadowed by his older brother, Julian, and when he started at Bjerke Upper Secondary School, he chose to study media and communications, instead of elite sports like his brother. He therefore left Skeid, and signed for Kjelsås.[1]

Kjelsås[edit]

Møller had his breakthrough in Kjelsås in 2009, scoring 20 of the total 38 goals Kjelsås had that season, preventing relegation from the 2009 Norwegian Second Division. The 2010-season started out with injury problems, but he still ended up scoring 16 goals in the league that season.[1] He was then discovered by the Norwegian scout Stig Marius Torbjørnsen, and went to Tromsø on trial.[2]

Tromsø[edit]

On 18 October 2010, he signed a three-year contract with the North Norwegian club.[3] Tromsø manager Per Mathias Høgmo described him as a "goalgetter", and that he would be a great addition to his 2011-squad.[4]

On 4 January 2011, he travelled up north to continue his football career.[5] He made his debut against Tromsdalen in a friendly match in January 2011, coming on in the second half and scored two goals.[6] He came on as a substitute against FC Daugava in the Europa League on 30 June for his first official match. Four days later, in an away match against Fredrikstad FK he was again brought on as a substitute for his first league match.

In 2014 he returned to third-tier Kjelsås.[7] His job outside of playing was that of football commentator, commenting Italian football for C More. In July 2015 he was hired by TV 2 to work with the Premier League.[8]
