Tobias Jan Håkan Linderoth (Swedish pronunciation: [tʊˈbiːɑs ˈlɪndɛˌruːt]; born April 21, 1979 in Marseille, France) is a Swedish football defensive midfielder playing for Galatasaray.

Contents

Club career

Linderoth played for Stabæk and then an unremarkable spell at Everton marred by injury, where he scored once against Charlton Athletic in the League Cup,[1] before he joined Copenhagen in summer 2004. He was a regular first team player for three seasons in Copenhagen and was made captain for the team that won two Danish championships and qualified for the group stage of the UEFA Champions League with Linderoth as a key player.

On June 12, 2007, Linderoth signed a three-year contract with the Turkish side Galatasaray, where he wears the number 6.

International career

Linderoth is a midfield dynamo on the Swedish national team where he also is assistant captain. Tobias has competed in the UEFA European Football Championship for Sweden in the 2004 tournaments as well as the FIFA World Cups in the 2002 and 2006 tournaments. In one game at the World Cup in 2002, he ran 14.6 kilometres (9.07 miles) during the 96 minutes of the match - not an unusual feature for the always hard-working player. Another key feature is his tough, dangerous and effective tackling. He is also known for his powerful shot.

On 26 May 2008, Linderoth scored his first international goal, the only goal in a 1-0 win over Slovenia in a pre-Euro 2008 friendly warm-up.

On 6 September 2008 during a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification game against Albania, he was injured and had to be substituted in the 6th minute. He made a promising comeback in the Turkish league against Sivasspor in November 2009, after more than 1 year after recovering.

Personal life

He is the son of football coach Anders Linderoth, a former Swedish international who played in the 1978 FIFA World Cup in Argentina (Tobias is born in France during Anders' spell at Marseille). Linderoth is known for his extremely high work-rate as a defensive midfielder. On 25 October 2006, Tobias and his wife Maria became parents when she gave birth to their first child.
