Ziege sidelined again

News round-up: Tromsø IL have appointed a new coach while Christian Ziege is injured again.
Otto Ulseth has completed the unusual transition from sports journalist to head coach of Norwegian Tippeligaen side Tromsø IL following a request by the club's players. Ulseth, who made his name as a journalist at Trondheim newspaper Adresseavisen, had been coach Per-Mathias Høgmo's assistant at Tromsø but following Høgmo's recent resignation now takes charge. "I am really looking forward to this challenge, but I have only signed for a year. I intend to return to my job as a journalist after the 2005 season," Ulseth said.

German international Christian Ziege faces more time on the sidelines after his return from a left ankle injury was cut short by a post-operative complication. Ziege, 32, limped out of VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach's 2-1 win over 1. FC Nürnberg last weekend after just 39 minutes. He will be out of action for three weeks after club doctor Stefan Hertl found the ankle was now infected.
