Elmander airs frustration

The Swede severed ties with the Trotters at the end of last season

after allowing his contract to run down. He has since signed for

Turkish giants Galatasaray, where he is hoping to be deployed as an

out-and-out frontman. Elmander was often used as right winger

during his time at the Reebok and admits to being left perplexed by

the club’s reluctance to use him through the middle. He is now

hoping to prove a point to those who doubted him in England when he

opens a new chapter in his career in Istanbul. “It was really

tough,” Elmander told Alingas Tidning on his time with Bolton. “It

is difficult when you think you are doing something well and then

you get taken away from that position and placed somewhere where

you can’t play. “You have to do what is best for the team, and I

tried to do that. “I thought I would be given another chance to

prove myself, but I never did.”
