Klubjagten is over for Jakob Poulsen.
The 36-year-old FC Midtjylland-captain continues namely his career in the australian Melbourne Victory. It confirms the club have signed a one-year contract with the dane.
- I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to play for Victory,
My family and I are excited about living in Melbourne and learn the city to know the culture.
And I also can't wait to see if it is true that the Victory has the best fans in the A-League, says Jakob Poulsen to the club's website.
There is also joy in the Melbourne Victory.
- It is fantastic for the club to sign a player with poulsen's experience. It was important for us to pick a leader who can perform under pressure and to set a standard for the other players.
Jacob is not only a strong leader. He is also really good technically, and he represents a big danger at set pieces, says Marco Kurz, who is the coach of the Melbourne Victory.
Poulsen is not the first dane, who have tried their luck in Melbourne. So played the previous landsholdsmålmand Thomas Sørensen for the new stadium Melbourne City from 2015-2017, like the former AaB and midfielder Michael Jakobsen appeared in 2016-2018.
Melbourne Victory has three times won the australian A-League by 2015. Last season ended with the club in third place.
