RUSSELL RESIGNED TO ROSENBORG FATE
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Monday, July 25, 2005
Suddenly surplus Rosenborg defender Robbie Russell is almost ready to find a new soccer home after reading the club management writing on the wall.

"It's a bad situation," the powerful right back told YA while sitting out RBK's Sunday loss to Adin Brown and Aalesunds FK. "I'm definitely considering changing clubs."

Russell has already rejected a loan offer from Swedish side Sundsvall, but says it is probably time to start looking around for his next adventure.

The Amherst, Massachusetts native has spent just over a year with the 13-time defendings champions, and his tenure was partially blighted by injuries.

However, he did see Champions League action with matches against Arsenal and a pair of direct Yank v. Yank duels with DaMarcus Beasley of PSV Eindhoven.

With RBK signing a pair of Uruguay internationals, including wide back Alejandro Lago, Russell has been nudged to begin searching for a new employer - not that he doesn't still expect first class treatment from the club.

"There's a rule in Norwegian football where only two non-EU players can be in a match squad for a game, and with Rosenborg's two new purchases it looks really difficult with me just having recovered from an injury," concluded Russell.

"I hope Rosenborg will help me in the future though, and give me a proper chance."
