FCK Talent signs rising star Roony Bardghji

The F.C. Copenhagen Talent Department has agreed a contract with Swedish youngster Roony Bardghji on his 15th birthday.

Bardghji first joined FCK from Malmö FF in July this year, and is the top scorer in the U17 league this season with as many as 15 goals from his first 10 matches.

"We are proud that we can attract and recruit one of the undoubtedly biggest Nordic talents. He is a unique player with special abilities on the highest international level, which he has already shown for us this season. Outside the field he has a great attitude as well and the right frame of mind to succeed. That is going to be as important for his future career," says Sune Smith-Nielsen, Head of Talent at F.C. Copenhagen.

"It's a huge joy for all of us at FCK Talent, that we have made this deal and we need to praise our Scouting and Recruitment departments, especially our Head of Recruitment, Mikkel Lund Køhler, who has been essential for this to be done.

"We have a unique education of players here in Copenhagen, which Roony himself has experienced in the months he has already been with us.

"He has felt that F.C. Copenhagen is the right place for him to improve and develop. And that means a lot for the players - that we have believe in them, and that they themselves feel they are getting better each day thanks to their excellent teammates and coaches."

Bardghji is a technically strong, left-footed offensive player, can use both feet well with and can play on either wing or as a striker.

His family is originally from Syria, but he himself was born in Kuwait - and has Swedish citizenship.
