Sweden midfielder Pontus Farnerud has rejoined RC Strasbourg, where he spent the 2003/04 season on loan.
Farnerud played 30 league games during his temporary stay at the Stade de La Meinau, but now returns on a three-year contract. The move reunites him with younger brother and Sweden forward Alexander Farnerud.
The new boy leaves Monaco after six seasons, and 94 league appearances, having arrived in France from Landskrona BoIS in 1998. He will play in the UEFA Cup with Strasbourg who enter the competition as French League Cup winners.
