Per Ciljan Skjelbred (born 16 June 1987) is a Norwegian footballer who currently plays as a midfielder for Hertha Berlin. He has previously played for Rosenborg and Hamburger SV, and has been capped 24 times playing for Norway, where he is the captain.

Club career[edit]

Skjelbred was born in Trondheim and started his career at local football club Trygg/Lade. He made an impression, and was selected to compete in a football talent competition entitled Proffdrømmen on Norwegian TV3. Skjelbred won this competition and as first prize, he got a week's training with Liverpool[1] Liverpool offered him a contract in order to include him in their youth team, but he declined. Instead, he went to the Norwegian club Rosenborg, where he soon made an impression.

Skjelbred made his debut in Tippeligaen against Bodø/Glimt in 2004, and aged 16 years and 358 days he is the second youngest player at Rosenborg.[2] After scoring a goal in the first match of the 2005 Champions League against Olympiacos, he was tackled in the return match at Lerkendal on 23 November by Ieroklis Stoltidis. Both bones in Skjelbred's lower leg snapped just above the ankle. Although he went in with both legs and had no chance of getting the ball, Stoltidis said he had not meant to harm Skjelbred.[3] Skjelbred returned to football on 10 March 2006 in Rosenborg's match against Aalesund, playing the first half of the match which Rosenborg won 5–1.[4]

Skjelbred joined the German side Hamburger SV in August 2011.[5] After playing 268 minutes for the club in Bundesliga, Skjelbred's transfer was called a "mistake" (Bisher Fehlgriff) by Kicker in November 2011,[6] and in November 2012 Skjelbred's name was one of five players that Hamburger SV stated they would sell when the transfer window opened in January 2013.[7]

However, after the 2013 January transfer window closed, Skjelbred remained a Hamburger SV player. In the summer of 2013, he was loaned for one season to Hertha BSC, who in turn loaned Pierre-Michel Lasogga to Hamburg.

After a very successful loan spell at Hertha BSC (he was also voted Bundesliga Norwegian Player of the Season during this time), Skjelbred finally moved to Hertha BSC permanently, during the 2014 Summer transfer window.

International career[edit]

Skjelbred was first called up for the Norwegian under-21 team in September 2005, at the age of 18.[8] He made his debut for senior team against Malta on 28 March 2007.

On the 3rd of September 2014 Skjelbred captained the Norwegian national side for the first time against England at Wembley. England won the match 1-0 thanks to a Wayne Rooney penalty. Per was handed the captain's armband after previous captain, Brede Hangeland retired from international football.
