There is evidence that Racing has had in its 107 years of history footballers of 47 different nationalities. From Argentina to Russia, from South Africa to Iceland … but never a Luxembourg-born player He has put on the shirt with the Racing crest on the chest. That’s about to change Lars Gerson, a versatile 31-year-old player, free of contract since he was fired last December from Norrkoping of the Swedish First Division. In Racing they already give his signing for closed.
Lars Gerson has been international 75 times (the photo that illustrates this news is taken knocking down David Silva in a match against Spain) his natural position is, despite being right-handed, the left-back or center-back on that same side, just what was sought to replace the fired Jordi Figueras, although there are also data that testify that he has played games as a defensive pivot. In the networks there are enough testimonies that it is a specialist in taking free kicks and penalties.
The career of the Luxembourgish has developed almost completely in Scandinavia Since 2007 he has been playing in Norway and in 2012 he crossed the border to settle in the Swedish first division, where he has played in Sundsvall and Norrkoping. Tomorrow, Monday, he is already waiting for you at La Albericia.
