Oscar Wendt (born 24 October 1985) is a Swedish footballer who currently plays as a left back for Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Biography[edit]

IFK Göteborg[edit]

After playing for IFK Skövde, he joined IFK Göteborg in 2003. He became an important first team player, earning 14 appearances on the Swedish U21 team and a call-up for the Swedish national team.

In his time at the club he played 91 matches, before moving to the Danish champions F.C. Copenhagen on a four-year contract for 6 million DKK.[1] After his departure to F.C. Copenhagen, a huge gap arose in the defence, later filled by Argentine defender José Shaffer coming from Racing Club.

Copenhagen[edit]

In his first two years at Copenhagen, he struggled to become a first team regular, first being a back-up for former Norwegian international André Bergdølmo and later Danish international Niclas Jensen. However, in 2008, he managed to become a first choice on the left back position for his team, earning him a call-up to the Swedish national team, his first in over 18 months. His strong performances also had him linked with both English club West Ham United and Italian club Genoa.[2][3]

With an injured André Bergdølmo in F.C. Copenhagen's 2006–07 UEFA Champions League campaign, Wendt played regularly as a left back, and in the team's 3–1 win against Celtic, he alongside fellow Copenhagen defender Michael Gravgaard was chosen for the Eurosport "Team of the Round".[4]

Borussia Mönchengladbach[edit]

Oscar Wendt moved to Borussia Mönchengladbach on a free transfer after signing a three-year contract on 10 June 2011.[5]
