“It is Bardghji and Lucas Bergvall (from Djurgården) who are talked about in Sweden as the next big talents. But Roony has really proven what he can do,” Olsson said.

“And everything I have seen and heard about him is that he is extremely good at staying grounded. That speaks volumes for him having a fantastic career.

“As Viktor Claesson (Copenhagen winger) said, Bardghji works hard every single day. He has a very bright future ahead of him. So we’ll see if something happens this summer or how it develops. It will be exciting to see what the next step will be. Also, for the Swedish national team.

“He plays on a team that advanced in the Champions League and is at the top. It will be exciting to follow him.”
