Bolton defender Steinsson: I told you Elmander was good
Gretar Steinsson is delighted Johan Elmander is proving his value at Bolton Wanderers.
Well-known to him both as a team-mate and as an opponent from their time in the Dutch Eredivisie, the full-back’s predicted this summer that this would be the season Wanderers’ fans finally saw the best of the club record signing.
“Johan didn’t have much luck in his first couple of years at the club but his work-rate has always been fantastic, even if he didn’t score as many goals as he would have liked,” he told the Bolton News.
“I said from day one that he was a striker of real quality and that it was only a matter of time before he started to find the net more regularly.
“The manager has given him the belief and the confidence, and he is re-paying that with goals.
“The fans are seeing the real Johan Elmander and I know there is more to come because of what the players see day-in, day-out in training. He’s just getting started.”
