Ken Remi Stefan Strandberg (born 25 July 1990) is a Norwegian footballer who plays as a defender for FC Krasnodar-2. Hailing from Lyngdal, Strandberg started his senior career for Mandalskameratene before he moved to Vålerenga in 2009. After three seasons with the Oslo-based club, he joined Rosenborg ahead of the 2012 season.

Strandberg has represented Norway from under-15 to senior level, and was the captain of the under-21 team that got a bronze medal in the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship. He was also picked for team of the tournament, with the likes of; David de Gea, Alberto Moreno, Marc Bartra, Asier Illarramendi, Isco, Koke, Thiago Alcântara, Marco Verratti, Álvaro Morata, Fabio Borini, Luuk de Jong.

Club career[edit]

Strandberg was born in Lyngdal[1] and played for Lyngdal IL until he moved to Mandalskameratene in 2006[2] where he made his debut for the senior team at the age of 15. He played three seasons for Mandalskameratene,[3] and made eight appearances in the First Division when the club had a spell in the second-tier league in 2007.[1]

Strandberg signed a four-year contract with the Tippeligaen side Vålerenga in January 2009.[2] He was loaned out to Bryne FK in July 2009, as a replacement for the injured Christian Gauseth.[3] Strandberg played four matches for the First Division side during the summer, before he returned to Vålerenga. He made his Tippeligaen-debut on 12 September 2009 when he replaced Mohammed Fellah 11 minutes before full-time in the match against Fredrikstad.[4] He has previously had trials with clubs such as; Derby, Portsmouth and Stuttgart.[5] Vålerenga sold Strandberg, who had one year left of his contract, to their rivals Rosenborg ahead of the 2012 season.[6]

In June 2014, Strandberg was part of a highly controversial "personal strike" against the club[7] Leading football pundits called out Strandberg's behavior for an outrage and comical[8] and there were calls to release him from the contract.[9]

On 26 August 2016, he joined Hannover 96 on loan from FC Krasnodar for the rest of the 2016–17 season.[10]

Upon his return from loan, he didn't make any appearances for Krasnodar in the 2017–18 season. For the 2018–19 season, he was moved to FC Krasnodar-2, which just advanced to the second-tier Russian Football National League.[11]

International career[edit]

Strandberg first represented his country at under-15 level, where he played two matches in 2005. The following year, he played three matches for the under-16 team. He scored one goal in the matches for the under-18 team in 2008, before he played four matches for the under-19 team the next year.[12] He made his debut for the under-21 team when he replaced Harmeet Singh after 78 minutes in the match against Hungary U21 on 28 May 2010.[13] He later became a regular on the under-21 team, and was the captain of the team that qualified for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship.[14]

Strandberg was called up for the Norwegian squad for the 2012 King's Cup, but had to withdrew due to an injury and was replaced by Thomas Drage.[15] Strandberg was also called up for senior squad for the friendly matches against South Africa and Zambia in January 2013, but had to withdrew from the squad due to a surgery in the hip.[16]
