Copenhagen. Captain Nicklas Helenius was top scorer in the Super League last season and was rumored to be on his way away from Silkeborg this summer.
Helenius did not go, however, and he does not hide the fact that there are some things that annoy him.
– I was disappointed with some things that happened, but it is far from the first time I have been disappointed with things in a transfer window. I have tried that a few times, says Helenius.
– I have made no secret of the fact that I have a dream of leaving again. So I wanted to, but there were things that didn’t work out, and that’s football.
The 31-year-old striker feels valued in Silkeborg and will now use the disappointment constructively this season, where the club must fight in both the Super League and the Conference League.
– I take it as if I am indispensable here in Silkeborg. The club likes me and I love being here too, so I didn’t have to leave just to leave.
– I’m allowed to be disappointed, but I’m also looking forward to some insanely great matches, says Helenius.
Silkeborg, who lost 0-1 to FC Copenhagen in Parken on Friday, ended up selling two of the team’s profiles in Nicolai Vallys and Rasmus Carstensen.
Head coach Kent Nielsen is happy that no more were sold and that a player like Helenius stayed.
– Basically, I would like to keep them all, but it is also a sign of our strategy that we can bring an academy player and a player we have found on a lower shelf up to the top level.
– If we had got 50 million for Helenius, we should probably have found something else, but the extraordinary offer for him did not come.
– We are fine with Nicklas staying, because he has a lot of experience, which is important for our team, says Nielsen.
Sports director in Silkeborg Jesper Stüker explains that there was simply never an offer for Nicklas Helenius, which the club had to decide on.
– It never became so concrete with Helenius that there was an offer. Many have asked him, but we should never have to deal with anything, says Stüker.
Helenius has previously tried his hand abroad in England’s Aston Villa and Germany’s Paderborn.
