A team with plenty of MLS ties has secured promotion back to Norway’s top tier.
FK Bodo/Glimt earned a spot in next season’s Tippeligaen campaign on Monday with a 1-0 victory over SK Vard Haugesund. Former New York Red Bulls midfielder Dane Richards score the decisive goal while Montreal Impact loanee Zarek Valentin reportedly turned in a solid outing in defense.
With promotion from the Adeccoligaen now secured, the team coached by former Red Bulls assistant Jan Halvor Halvorsen will shift their focus towards winning the league title. Bodo/Glimt can do so with a single win in any of their final five matches.
What do you think of Valentina and Richards helping Bodo/Glimt secure promotion to Norway’s top tier? Surprised by all the MLS connection on the club? Think Valentin should try and seek a permanent move to Bodo/Glimt?
