Not all Brøndby fans are apparently equally excited about the approach of Nicolai Vallys, who grew up in Østerbro in Copenhagen and has previously said that he was an FCK fan. Although, according to the club, the vast majority of expressions from the supporters have been positive, Brøndby now goes on its website and distances itself from some of the negative messages on social media.
Certain comments are unacceptable, believes the club’s football director, Carsten V. Jensen.
“We are incredibly happy that with Vallys we have got one of the Superliga’s biggest profiles. He is a fantastically skilled footballer, and he is just as excited and humbled by the switch to Brøndby IF as we are. We can see that the vast majority of statements from the club’s fans are very positive, but unfortunately there have also been a number of comments and messages which are unacceptable and go way over the line. It is simply beyond my comprehension that you can bring yourself to send such borderline and decidedly hateful messages to a new player in our club and at the same time think that you can call yourself a Brøndby fan”, says the football director.
Vallys, who was bought from Silkeborg IF, also dealt with his relationship with FCK when he was presented in Brøndby.
“I have to contribute on and off the pitch, and I’m really looking forward to that. And no, I didn’t stand on Sydsiden as a child, almost the opposite, but I’m a grown man, and the switch to Brøndby IF is a huge step in my career”, he said on Wednesday.
Still, it seems some fans haven’t exactly welcomed him to the club with open arms. Brøndby captain Andreas Maxsø distances himself from that.
“It is unacceptable that some so-called fans resort to these kinds of messages”, he says.
“Vallys is just as much a Brøndby player as I and the other players in Brøndby IF are. Like Vallys, all of us players in the dressing room are proud to be allowed to have the opportunity to represent Brøndby IF, and we only have one wish, and that is to win games for the club.’
Vallys can make his debut on Sunday against AC Horsens.
