Portret Torgrim Sommerfeldt
The Norwegian player of Aris-Leeuwarden is preparing for the play-off matches against Donar Groningen. The 25 year old player wass added to Aris last year. Before that he played for Asker aliend, the number two in Norway. Perhaps Aris can make a stunt coming Thursday during the first game in the play-offs thanks to this 1,89 meter tall, small forwarder. We spoke with Sommerfeldt about the changes for his team in this northern derby.
