• A Superligaen ever-present at left-back for Nordsjælland during the first half of 2010/11, which began in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Europa League, and sold in January to København on a four-year deal.

• A Swedish Under-21 international, he made his debut for the seniors in a 2-1 friendly win against Botswana – a week before joining FCK.
