Elias who is born and raised in Stockholm Sweden is a very promising central defender with great physique and ability.

He started his football in Sweden playing for traditional team Hammarby IF but two years ago made the transfer to Spanish Top Junior League team Puerto Malagueno in southern Spain.


With a mix of Swedish and Spanish styles Elias combines excellent physique with great ability to read the game and break up up play.

Elias is very fast on the turn and marking into space he is also excellent in man to man situations and an aggressively tight marker.

A modern central defender with great mentality, a winners attitude Elias also benefits from playing his early years in midfield where he developed the ability to "pass the ball and build the game" and now implement this in defence.


Its these qualities and the development in Elias game since moving to Spain that have attracted strong interest from several directions in European football with Bristol City, Burnley, Olympiakos of Greece and other Spanish teams of course leading the chase for his services.

Q-evolution predicts a bright future for this 17 year old talent if he keeps developing and improving his game as well as that of recent years.
