Christian Landu Landu (born 25 January 1992) is a Norwegian footballer currently playing for Tromsø.

Landu Landu is of Congolese descent, but has represented Norway at youth international level.

Club career[edit]

Landu Landu was born in Stavanger and started his career in local club Tasta, before he joined Viking in 2005. He trained with the Viking first-team for the first time in 2006, and later, while still a youth player, began training with the first team every day. Egil Østenstad described him as a talented player.[1]

He made his debut for the Viking first team as substitute in a Norwegian Premier League match on 3 August 2008, and started his first full-game against Sandefjord in Sandefjord. In the 2009 season he made 4 appearances for the first team, with another 12 following in the 2010 season. In November 2009 the player's agent claimed he was on trial at Liverpool.[2]

International career[edit]

He has been capped at all levels from U15 to U21 by Norway.[3]

Personal life[edit]

He was born in Stavanger to parents of Congolese ancestry. His father played football in his home country, but never at top level. He was at a young age brought to football by friends. He started his career as a goalkeeper, but thought that was boring after a while. He said that he suited best to an outfield role in an interview in 2009.[4]
