Markus Fjørtoft (26) has never felt any pressure to become a new father Jan Åge. And he has made his football career an adventure – in his own way.

When I realized that I could not play for Arsenal or Real Madrid, and still want to make a living playing football, I set out to make this adventure as fun as possible. I follow my dream, says Markus Fjørtoft to VG.

He is in Scotland, where he recently switched to Greenock Morton, who plays the league cup on Tuesday night.

After moving from his parents and Bærum seven years ago, he has played football in the USA, New Zealand and Scotland – and has also received a top education at the renowned Duke University.

– I played for Hamilton in the Premier League last year. Now I have changed clubs, but live in the same apartment, because it is right nearby, says Fjørtoft, who is now in the level two club Greenock Morton.

– Here there are only Scots – and me, Fjørtoft continues, as eloquent as his father.

– I wanted to continue the football journey, at the same time as I think it is extremely rewarding as a human being to get to know new cultures.

As the son of his father, he knows that football can bring ups and downs.

– I wanted to pursue my childhood dream – but at the same time have an education to fall back on. There is no better place than the United States. I can definitely recommend others to do the same, says Markus Fjørtoft about his four years in “college soccer” for Duke University’s team, and at the same time he took a Master’s degree in economics.
