Argentina U20 player Mateo Tanlongo has joined FC Copenhagen on loan from Sporting CP.
Mateo Tanlongo will be playing in Denmark this season. FC Copenhagen announced on Friday that the 20 year old has joined them on a season long loan deal with a purchase clause in the agreement.
The midfielder was part of the Argentina U20 national team at the U20 World Cup back in May and June of this year. The Argentine, who will wear the number 8 shirt, spoke to their official website. Here is what he had to say:
“I am really happy to be here and will work hard to settle in quickly and help the club.
“It’s a great opportunity for me, and FCK are a respected club with great results both in Denmark and in European tournaments, most recently with the qualification for the Champions League again.
“Now I’m just looking forward to getting out on the training pitch and meeting all my new teammates. I’m also looking forward to experiencing Parken and the fantastic atmosphere there.”
FC Copenhagen’s sporting director Peter Christiansen had this to say:
“We wanted to strengthen the squad further in the No 6 position, and Mateo fits in really well with our recruitment strategy with his great talent and potential.
“He has already tried his hand at a big club like Sporting, and he has the tools to develop into a really skilled player. We must now develop that together.”
The Argentine took part in 14 matches last season.
