Fredrik Flo is – as the name implies – a tall player who originally comes from Sogndal. The 25-year-old is the son of the old national team member Håvard Flo. – I have two and a half seasons in Øygarden behind me – but that team recently went bankrupt and thus I became unemployed. Now I am really looking forward to performing here in Sandefjord. Here everything is ready for full focus on football. The first impression of both the city, the coaches, the players and all the people in and around the club seems very uplifting. Fredrik Flo has been training with “Guttane” for a week now.
And soon the girlfriend comes down. – It will be great – now I live in a hotel – but as soon as she comes down there will be a search for permanent residence. Even though I have invested a lot in football – I have taken a bachelor’s degree in economics next to it. And I have one year left of a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. So it has not just been football. As I said, I have one year in the 2nd Division with Øygarden, but also a season in OBOS. Before that I was a Sotra player for a while. Fredrik Flo sums up his career so far. Now it will be a notch up – Elite series with SF….
With a father like Håvard Flo – who is a cousin with guys like Jostein and Tore Andre – the football genes should be ok. – I was born in Denmark – when my dad played for AGF. Then the trip went to Bremen – and later to Wolverhampton. We moved home to Sogndal when I was four years old. I have previously played striker, but have now retrained as a stopper. I can also play left back. I am 193 centimeters – compulsory Flo height – and have dueling strength and the head game as my biggest quality. Fredrik Flo takes us on his football life so far….
General manager Espen Bugge Pettersen is satisfied that we have got a defender in place – in that Philip Slørdahl was called home to Lillestrøm before the loan agreement expired on 1 August. And that our captain Sander Moen Foss is unfortunately out for the rest of the season. He was injured in the second game of the season against Glimt. – The battles come close until the transfer window starts – and we were in need of strengthening our defense. Fredrik seems calm with the ball in his legs and everyone sees that he has a solid physique. We hope he eventually takes the Elite Series pace – and adapts to our style of play. He’s been training with us for a week already – and it looks promising. Espen and SF are so far happy with the team’s latest addition….
