Lars Jacobsen interview

Lars Jacobsen is of course our outstanding right back. Since joining I believe he played every game but one. He is currently establishing himself as a national team regular.

At UEFA.com Lars Jacobsen answered questions at a webchat recently. The long transcript is online, and here's my highlights:

Q: Do you think you can beat Celtic at home?
Lars Jacobsen: We have a very good chance against Celtic. We are strong at home. And if we can beat Manchester United at home we can beat Celtic for sure. We are looking forward to it. Celtic were very good against us at Celtic Park though. They have a very good team.

Q: Hi Lars, I read that Dortmund is interested in you. At the moment, do you feel ready to play in Germany or another big league?
Lars Jacobsen: I feel ready for a bigger league if the situation arises. But I am happy focusing on the last few matches of this season and will wait and see what happens.

Q: How influential are the Laudrup brothers in Denmark?
Lars Jacobsen: The Laudrup brothers were influential when they played and are a big part of Danish football. At the moment they are quiet but I hear that Michael is going to coach in Spain. They have meant a lot to Danish football.

Q: Who will win the Champions League this year?
Lars Jacobsen: My tip is maybe Manchester United. Barça if they qualify and possibly Chelsea or Lyon too. Out of those four!


Read the whole thing for him comparing Danish football to Swedish, German and Champions League. Talking computer games, favourite players, who to look out for and much else.

The thing about Borussia Dortmund having an interest in him is no longer just a rumor as their sporting director has publicly stated so (Eurosport.com / Dortmund want Jacobsen, clubcall.com / Dortmund target Copenhagen star). But Paris St. Germain too have him on their wish list (jadransport.org). And who knows what other clubs? That is something Danish football has to put up with - the leagues of the larger European countries are usually more interesting for the players.

Copenhagen Files

I love football and I love the Internet. Copenhagen Files is a playground of mine for the latter and a billboard of the former. The focus is on FC København - the #1 club in Copenhagen and Denmark.

I watch every single FC København game - aways usually on the Danish TV, home games currently from my season ticket seat at Parken Stadium. Every now and then a report from the nearby training pitches are to be expected. Or perhaps just from the supporter environment at local parks or bars ;-)

I also like to bet on games which usually takes place online these days. Therefore, I gather numbers and look at them; I analyze, twist, turn and play with them. And some of them ends up here as my probability assessments. But this blog is not about betting.

In the right hand column I collect every single relevant link you can think of. I actually use it for bookmarks often - perhaps they will prove handy to you too? They should easily guide you to the latest info on injuries, club economy, squad value etc.
