Omonia: A blond giant

Must read

He put quality with Philip Elander

The thirty-one-year-old (born in Malmö on April 22, 1993), international Swedish central defender, Filip Elander, Omonia announced yesterday, their fifth transfer after Evandro Costa, Yannis Masoura, Mateo Maric , Alpha Dyunku.

The Swedish “tower” that sees the world from a height of one meter and 93 centimeters, had as its last football station the Danish team Odense. He was previously with Scottish Rangers for four years with whom he was crowned champion twice, once cup winner while competing for two seasons in the UEFA Europa League groups. He played football for four years in the Italian Serie A, with FC Bologna and Hellas Verona. He also won two championships with Malmo where he played from 2011 to 2015.

He has made 23 appearances with the Swedish National Team, one of which at Euro 2020, while the important moments of his career include winning the U21 European Championship in 2015.

The player is expected in Cyprus in the coming days for the completion of the transfer and will then be integrated with the team's mission to Poland.

The background of the international Swedish defender is ideal. He has titles to his credit, among which he is European, while he has competitive performances in strong leagues (Italian, Swedish, Scottish), but also at the level of European competitions. Intercollegiate and national. It's a transfer of a player that in theory is compatible with the type (of player) a team needs to upgrade and make a championship run. The question is on the grass, the tall man is the one that the world expects.

With the inclusion of the Swede the team gains more quality and identity, but, naturally, it is still far from the desired level of play that has been marked by the Lithuanian coach.

At the moment, 16 footballers are on the A'' list: Fabiano, Uzoho, Lang, Koulibaly, Cipriano, Hamas, Erakovic, Masouras, Evandro, Semedo, Simic, Stepinski, Bakic, Maric, Dunku, Elander.

Valdas Dabrauskas in the recent press conference had said that the team needs a right back, a central defender (they have arrived) a staff midfielder and wingers. With a vacancy on the A list we look forward to seeing what the design people have in mind.
