'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Elmander Joins Brondby


Former Norwich City loanee, Johan Elmander has re-joined Denmark's Brondby as a free agent after his contract expired at Galatasaray.

Elmander spent two years at Brondby from 2006-08, making 81 appearances and scoring 29 goals(!)

Brondby's sporting director, Per Rud was gushing in his praise of his new signing.

'(Johan) is undoubtedly a player from the top shelf," Rud said, speaking to Brondby`s official website. "Besides having an amazing history with Brondby, Johan Elmander is still an incredibly talented footballer.'

Top shelf eh?! There's more.

"He starred last season in 28 appearances for Norwich in the Premier League, and in the seasons before he has played more than 50 matches for Galatasaray. This does not happen without being physically fit and having a very high energy while playing level.

"In our conversations with Elmander, he has shown great desire to be a part of our project, and we expect that, in addition to raising our team, (he) will have a major impact on building the winning culture of the club and the development of our many young players.

"Similar to Thomas Kahlenberg we (see) Elmander as a carrier of culture at the club. With his vast experience, he will be invaluable for our young squad and the talents that are waiting."

Yes, you did read that correctly - He 'starred' last season in 28 appearances for Norwich in the Premier League.

Apparently, City had an option to sign Elmander at the end of the season but considering he 'starred' 28 times it's something of a surprise that Neil Adams didn't choose to sign him...
