A tough-tackling versatile player, Alfe is equally comfortable at full back, central defence or as a holding midfielder. He first had a taste of English football at Nottingham Forest in 1994, signing from Bryne BK and made 93 appearances before moving on to Leeds United at the beginning of the 1997-98 season. Although not a regular starter for Leeds, he was a very important squad member and came into his own during their UEFA Cup campaign in 1999 and is an experienced international with Norway. Signed for £2.5m in June 2000 as Manchester City's first major purchase on their return to the Premiership, he was forced to retire due to injury.
