Copenhagen scout insists 'whole world' knew about Chelsea, Barcelona target Roony Bardghji

FC Copenhagen chief scout Robin Asterhed has spoken of bringing Roony Bardghji from Malmo.

The 16 year-old has just made his first team debut for FCK and is being watched by Chelsea, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Ajax.

Asterhead left MFF for FCK, with Bardghji following him and he said: "When he came to Malmö, I think more or less the whole of football Europe knew about Roony. For some Malmö fans, it's like I tipped FCK about him, and that they did not know him before. I can say with certainty that this was not the case.

"I came to FCK nine or ten months before Roony, so I understand. But I think it became clear recently, when Ståle Solbakken (then coach of FCK) said that because they had missed Andreas Schjelderup, they did not think to miss Roony. Then you understand that my influence is not so great."
