Fulham's Hangeland is Premiership's most cerebral

Fulham defender Brede Hangeland is emerging as the Premiership's most cerebral footballer.

In a recent Q&A, Hangeland was asked to name the latest book he had read: "I read quite a lot, the last one was a Norwegian book which you won't know. But the last English language book was Underworld by Don DeLillo."

So not only is Hangeland a fan of 800-page Pulitzer-prize nominated literature, but he also reads books in two languages!

Have your say
