Ghana teen Atanga eager to step in Olsen shoes at FC Nordsjselland

In-form Ghanaian teenager Isaac Atanga is looking forward to fill the void left by Skov Olsen at Danish outfit FC Nordsjselland.

The Danish international hit 22 goals in 36 games last season for FC Nordsjaelland before being sold to Bologna this summer and his absence seemed to have left a big gap in the team.

Atanga is, however, coming into the picture and with three goals in three games already, the Ghanaian youngster has emphasised he is ready to step into Olsen’s shoes.

“The sake of Andreas has left a big hole in the team, which we must try to fill out together. I will do what I can to contribute to it,” Atanga stated after the win over Ebsjerg on Sunday.

He added: “I think I’m a goal scorer, but I can also set goals. I did a lot at the U19 last season and I am looking forward to get my first assist in the first team. I believe I can continue to score more goals. I missed a great chance against Esbjerg to score a brace but I look forward to my next chances and making a better decision.”

The Ghanaian turns 19 today (Monday) and he is happy he spent an additional time at the youth team which has helped him to develop well into the senior side.

“It was really good for me with a year more in the Under 19 team, because I learnt a lot about the style of play of the club and it has made my transition into the first team easy,” Atanga noted.
