Brede Hangeland

Where is Brede Hangeland now?

Fulham’s former Norwegian defender Brede Hangeland retired from playing at the end of the 2015/16 Premier League season after a two-year spell with Crystal Palace.

Playing professionally for 16 seasons with just four clubs he ended his career having made over 500 first-team appearances and winning the Norwegian Cup and Danish Superliga twice.

He was also an important member of the Norway international side between 2002 and 2014 and was capped 91 times with 48 of those as captain.

During a 2016 Norwegian podcast Hangeland controversially spilled the beans on some of his former team-mates who he labeled lazy and uninterested when it came to working out in the gym.

Amongst the players he named and shamed were Emmanuel Adebayor who he said was always eating, Jimmy Bullard who he said was a good player but very weak and Dimitar Berbatov who he claimed was more interested in getting a massage than working out.

Since retiring from playing Hangeland has gone into broadcasting and currently works in his native Norway as a pundit covering the Premier League for television channel TV2.
