In the Norwegian Premier League he scored 74 goals in 174 matches for Rosenborg, with whom he won five league championships.

Sørloth joined Rosenborg from Strindheim in 1985. Two years later he moved to Borussia Mönchengladbach in Germany, but the spell was unsuccessful and hence short, and Sørloth returned to Rosenborg. In 1993, he once again tried his luck abroad, in Turkish club Bursaspor, but he left in 1994 to play for Viking for the remainder of his career.

International careerEdit

In addition, Sørloth scored 15 goals in 55 matches for Norway. Sørloth was a part of the Norwegian 1994 FIFA World Cup squad, and played one match during the tournament. This was his last international match.

Personal lifeEdit

His son Alexander is also a professional footballer with Turkish club Trabzonspor. .[1]
