South African youth international Luke Le Roux has set out his goals ahead of the 2021 Swedish Allsvenskan season.
The 20-year-old midfielder made a move to the Scandinavian country from SuperSport United a year ago and he made an instant impact playing 21 top-flight games for newly promoted Varbergs BoIS as they finished in 11th place on the log standings.
Coach Joakim Perrson built the team around the former Amajita captain as he played the role of breaking attacks and initiate moves for Varbergs.
Varbergs has three South Africans in their books with Tashreeq Matthews and Keanin Ayer also in the first team. All three players played a big role as they survived their first ever season in the top division.
Ayer played 23 league games scoring one goal and assisting another strike while playing in the right back position. Matthews was involved in his first full season playing senior football and the winger scored one goal and assisted another three goals to help the club have a good first campaign in the country’s elite division.
Le Roux is looking to pick up where he left off last season and play more games for the club while also pushing to grow his game more and have a good 2021 campaign.
“Yeah I’m definitely looking forward to the new season. Personally I just want to have a good season and play as many games as possible for the club.
“Seeing that it’s my second year abroad, I think that will definitely help me because now I know more or less what it is really about and I think that is an advantage unlike when I arrived and still had to adapt to new environments.”
