Club Brugge KV

Clubs: IF Brommapojkarna, Örebro SK, Club Brugge KV, Brøndby IF

• Launched his career with IF Brommapojkarna and won promotion to Allsvenskan – after a play-off – in his first season. 

• Made just three top-division appearances in the 2007 campaign, which resulted in the club's immediate relegation and a return to the second tier.

• Transferred to Örebro in 2009, he enjoyed an outstanding debut season, making 28 starts and being nominated for the Allsvenskan's young player of the year award; he maintained his progress the following term, helping the club to a surprise third-place finish.

• Graduated from the Swedish Under-21 side to the senior squad and made his full debut in a January 2010 friendly against Syria in Damascus; involved again the following winter, starting friendlies against Botswana, South Africa and Cyprus.

• Left Örebro for Club Brugge and helped his new employers through the group stage of the UEFA Europa League, having made his European debut in a third qualifying round home win against Qarabağ FK on 28 July 2011.

• Helped Brugge to fourth in the 2012/13 season before transferring to Brøndby.
