New Signing #1 - Introduction to Brede Hangeland
It's turning out to be an exciting week. Finding a dominant Centre Back has been a problem for Fulham pretty much since Chris Coleman's career was prematurely ended. Mr H's second (though it's actually the first to be officially confirmed) signing for Fulham is 6' 5'' Norwegian Centre-Back Brede Hangeland who would seem to fit the bill exceedingly well. He began his career at Viking FK, where he stayed for five seasons making 120 appearances and scoring 6 goals. During that spell he was managed by Mr Hodgson who was manager at Viking for two years prior to taking over Finland. In January 2006 Brede moved to F.C. Copenhagen for whom he made 69 appearances and scored 3 goals, he has also gained 41 international caps for Norway.
