Coaching - In the Value Chain
My passion is football

Richard Lilja
I can offer a lot of knowledge and experience – together with a positive, committed and serious attitude. I am an excellent team player with both teaching and management skills.

Experience and Education
I have coached men, women and youth teams at the highest level. I have more than 25 years’ experience, the last 10-15 years as a professional coach. On top of my UEFA A-licence from 2008, I achieved the UEFA Elite Youth licence in 2015. 

In 2021 I started at MCAST (University of Malta) and SDU (University of South Denmark) working on "International Sports Coaching". In late 2022 I graduated.

Today I work as an Instructor at DBU (Danish FA), and as coach / scout for a number of different clubs.

I am happy and proud that players I have coached, are now playing for the Danish National team, Danish National Youth teams, Premier League, German Bundesliga, 
Dutch Eredivisie,  Danish Superliga, Danish 1. and 2. Division – just to name a few.
