My friend Lars Iver Strand is finally back on the football field after a long injury break. Lars Iver and I was a force to be reckoned with in Tromsø in our younger days, and he lived with my family when he moved from Porsanger to Tromsø. I’m really happy on his behalf and it is good for him to come to a club that is willing to give him a chance. I don’t know many footballers who train as hard as Lars Iver, and it’s nice to see that all the hard work has finally paid off. I have been waiting for him to come back and I have contributed as much as I could, he has even been here in Blackburn and got treated by our incredibly talented medical staff. Lars is undoubtedly one of the most talented players I’ve ever played with, and I sincerely hope that he will succeed this season. After such a long injury break, it will naturally go up and down in the beginning, but it will all come back to him and I expect that Lars Iver’s going to be one of the profiles in the Norwegian Premier League when he gets back to good old form.
