From A Duck To A Swan

Christoffer Lyngsø

He is only 17 years old but still the former MSO Younglings captain Christoffer Lyngsø is now the captain of a team of young talents and the infamous Sami Arsal. MSO blog has had a talk with Lyngsø about the start to the season and what we can expect from the team this season. This is the first of many articles about how to turn the ugly duckling, MS Odense , into a beautiful swan. A swan that want to fly away with the Golden League 8 trophy in 2016.

“We know when we have a chance. Then we must grab it and get some confidence and some points” he started and continued “We must be realistic though and know that there will only be a few wins this season. It is natural with a squad like ours, but the potential of this squad is looking good and with some luck we might start to get some good wins in the spring of 2015” he said. Young Christoffer is captain of a team without strikers and defender but they work hard to change things he said.

“We have a good goalkeeper in Alfredo Stacul. He might not be a Charlie- or a Golden-boy but he is young and he is very talented. We also have many good young talented midfielders. Hana, Sami and Andrea is among the top players at the moment but Sanda, Salin and myself also has a lot to offer to the team and i am proud that mister Bosnjak has chosen me as team captain” He said and praised his teammates for showing good team spirit in the cup games Wednesday afternoon. “We took a big beating Sunday against Vollsmose and we needed to work even harder in the game against TheConners. We did and we won. The win came late but we won. Sami was the man of the match. He assisted me when i scored the first goal and he was cool and relaxed when he hammered the penalty shoot into the net only minutes later” he said.

The club got a new logo this week thanks to vgrille. The symbolize the ugly duckling turning into a swan. The logo combine the work coach Bosnjak has to do with the squad at the moment and it is also to tell that the club comes from the same city as poet and fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen, born in Odense in 1805. Captain Lyngsø like the new logo. “There is a lot of story in that logo. To make a good future we must have a good past. Hans Christian Andersen is a part of our past here in Odense. One we are proud of. Today Sami helps Sanda, Salin myself and many others to build a past that is so important to get a good future. The club has always had big ambitions, they still do. Sami has them, Stacul has them, Hana has them and mister Bosnjak still has them too. We want more than the club has been able to do in the past. We want to become a part of a proud history alongside other local talents in the future. To be able to do it, we have to make a real strong foundation. That is what we have started and what we will finish together”.
