Emil Bergstroem staying in Górnik? Stop the Swede – Sport na sportdziennik.com

Emil Bergstrom may not be a Górnik Zabrze player for more than a month. What about the future?

The experienced defender joined Górnik in September last year after the summer transfer window closed. His late arrival at the mining club was made possible because he was an out-of-contract player at the time.

Nice entry

Previously, the experienced defender who turned 30 years old on May 19 played in several European leagues, at home to Russia’s Djurgardens and Rubin Kazan, Swiss clubs FC Basel and Grasshopper, as well as Netherlands’ FC Utrecht and Willem II Tilburg. At the last club in the 2021/22 season, he scored 13 games in the Eredivisie. He appeared in Górnik out of necessity, as Rafał Janicki suffered a bad ligament tear in the derby with Piast, and the checkered team needed to strengthen the defensive line. He signed a contract until the end of the season and immediately joined the starting lineup.

– After the 2021/22 season, I was left without club duties. But that doesn’t mean I don’t go to training. With a group of players like myself, we work from home in Stockholm. We have our own coach and classes are held four times a week. Besides, I go to the gym alone, I run alone. Six days of training, one day off. This is what my free time was like at that time. When I came to Zabrze, after a few days, after three training sessions, I started playing and that’s what I wanted. I don’t want to waste my time,” he explained. Emil Bergstrom after arriving at Zabrze.

At the end of the season, he played in 24 league games, including 22 starts, becoming an important part of the team. A confident and self-sacrificing defender who adds to his own height (188 cm) in front of the opponent’s goal. In his eighth league match, he scored a goal. It was in a meeting with Lechia in Gdańsk in November. Then he scored in a very important meeting with Zagłębie in Lubin with a 1: 0 header in the game, which started a series of outstanding winning streak. So far, there have been six of them in a row, and at Zabrze they hope that this great record will also be maintained after Saturday’s game against Miedź in Legnica.

Bergstroem was praised even after the last game with Pogoń by Lukas Podolski himself. The 2014 world champion drew attention to the dedication and sacrifice in the Scandinavian defender’s game. In a clash with the “porters” in the second half, in a goalless draw, he blocked the ball with a fine intervention after Alexander Gorgon’s blow, which inevitably led to the goal. “For me, it’s like scoring a goal. Great satisfaction that it worked. By the way, this match against Pogoń and playing in front of an audience like that right! Great atmosphere, full stadium, it’s great to play in front of such a crowd – he stressed.

Open to all options

Now the most important thing for the Górnik activists is to keep Bergstroem in the Zabrze a little longer. Is that possible? “We will see later.” I’m open to all options, but as of today I can’t say what will be the outcome of it all – said the experienced player.

President Adam Matysek, when asked about the Swede, said that the club would make efforts to extend the contract, as would team leader Lukas Podolski and coach Jan Urban.

While there is no shortage of centre-backs at the Zabrze club, with Richard Jensen, Rafał Janicki, Aleksander Paluszek and Boris Sekulić also able to play in this position, a player of Bergstroem’s class who also has three caps for his country’s national team will be very useful next season. Plus, he speaks… Japanese! This is a good thing, because there are two Japanese on the mining club team, Daisuke Yokota and Kanji Okunuki.



MATCH Emil Bergstroem is playing for Górnik this season. This balance consists of 24 league and two cup games. The Swedish centre-back scored two goals in it in the top league.
