Club career

Pasanen became a regular for Lahti during the club's promotion season in 1998. During the next two seasons he made 42 appearances for the club in Finland's Veikkausliiga.

Many of Europe's top clubs had become interested in the promising Pasanen, and in the summer of 2000 he joined Dutch club Ajax. He became a regular in the Ajax defense in his first season, but his progress was halted when he broke his foot in August 2001, and had to miss most of the 2001–02 season. Next season he was a regular again as Ajax reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

He fell out of favour at Ajax in 2003–04, and spent the second half of the season on loan at Portsmouth in the English Premier League. Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp was interested in purchasing Pasanen at the end of the season, but claimed Ajax's asking price was too high.

Pasanen was then signed by reigning German champions Werder Bremen in the summer of 2004. He has since become a key player for the club, helping them to a top three finish in the Bundesliga and the second round of the Champions League in each of his two seasons at the club.

International career

Pasanen is also a regular for the Finnish national team. He made his international debut on 15 November 2000 against the Republic of Ireland. Pasanen has mostly played at right back for Finland, as the team lacks quality players for that position.

Pasanen has also played in Finland futsal national team, where he has six caps and two goals.
