Official: Singh Signs For Copenhagen
South African U23 star Luther Singh has secured himself a move to Danish giants FC Copenhagen.
The 23-year-old winger seems highly rated by the Danish side after receiving the Nr. 7 shirt and putting pen to paper on contract until 2025.
He joins the club from Braga but was loaned out to FC Pacos De Ferreira during the 2021/22 campaign.
“Luther is an interesting player with great offensive potential,” FCK sports director Peter Christiansen told the club’s official websigte.
“With his speed and abilities one-on-one he can be a crucial player. He can play on both flanks and can finish well.
“His talent has always been great, and he has developed well, but he is not at his maximum yet.
“We believe we can raise his bar to become a top player in Parken once he has gotten used to things. At the same time, it is an advantage that he knows Scandinavia and has also done well in a strong league like the Portuguese top flight.”
Singh himself was pleased to finalise his move to Kopenhagen after taking part in the Tokyo Olympics.
“FCK has a fantastic reputation in Europe and not least in South Africa, where we all know the story of Zuma, but also Elrio Van Heerden, who did great here,” he said.
“I have only heard good things about the club, and even though I had opportunities in Portugal, England and other leagues, F.C. Copenhagen is the right choice for me.
“I have been to Scandinavia before, so I know the mentality, the climate and the physical style of play that can sometimes characterise the matches. I approach this challenge humbly and know that it takes hard work to break through here, but I know that I will have skilled teammates and coaches around me, so I’m just looking forward to getting started.”
At Copenhagen, he will follow in the footsteps of club legend Sibusiso Zuma, who played for Copenhagen between 2005 and 2008. Elrio Van Heerden also played for Copenhagen between 2006 and 2009.
