Connection with Bob Bradley brought Sigurd Rosted to TFC
In a 1-on-1 interview, Rosted discussed how his move from Brøndby to MLS came about, his long association with Bradley, and much more.
Bob Bradley finally got his man in January when Toronto FC added Norwegian centre back Sigurd Rosted to its roster.
During his time in charge of Stabæk Fotball in Norway’s first division from 2014 to 2015, Bradley attempted to sign Rosted when he was playing in the country’s lower leagues, but a deal never materialized. Instead, Bradley ended up coaching against Rosted when the defender joined Sarpsborg 08 FF.
Rosted remained on Bradley’s radar all this time, and when TFC was looking to bolster their back line with a veteran centre back this off-season, the club reached out to Danish club Brøndby about a possible transfer. Toronto ended up signing Rosted, 28, using Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) to a three-year deal, with an option for 2026.
In this one-on-one interview with TFC Republic, Rosted discussed how his move from Brøndby to MLS came about, his long association with Bradley, being teammates with Canadian international Jonathan David in Belgium, and much more.
