Manager careerEdit

Under Sandstø's leadership Odd Grenland performed consistently in the top flight until the club was relegated in 2007. Sandstø also led Odd to their first Norwegian cup victory in 69 years, in 2000.

Since 2008, Sandstø has been the head coach of clubs at the second level of Norwegian football. In 2008, he led IK Start to promotion. In 2010, he led Løv-Ham, who were struggling financially, to a surprising spot in the play-offs. In both 2011 and 2012, he led Sandefjord Fotball to third place and narrowly missed promotion. In 2016, he led FK Jerv to a third place and a spot in the play-offs, which is the club's best league performance in history.
