I’ve lost count of the you-never-know-where-life-takes-you experiences since I began working for The New Saints FC. One of my favourite ones though comes from the summer of 2019, when the champions of Wales played their Danish counterparts, in the UEFA Champions League.
Prior to the first leg game at Park Hall, as well as the teams training, there was also a press conference for the respective managers. The Danes didn’t take up the option of doing theirs, but extended the invitation to me to do one on their behalf.
Seven years previously, Ståle Solbakken was the manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers. At that time, I had a season ticket in the south bank at Molineux, one of the crowd looking on as the Norwegian occupied the technical area.
Then, here I am, in a room one-on-one with the man himself. You never know where life takes you, indeed. You can watch the interview below.
