CV is responsible – Ekstra Bladet
– I expect a major replacement in Brøndby this summer, where football director Carsten V. Jensen will hit the spot with his purchases, says Ekstra Bladet’s expert commentator, Stig Tøfting

Seven games, seven defeats and 2-15 in goal scoring.

Most head coaches would be threatened with firing with such a critical statistic.

But Niels Frederiksen should not fear for his job. At least not in the short term, says Ekstra Bladet’s football expert, Stig Tøfting.

He believes to a much greater extent that the main responsibility for the Danish champions’ collapse and great spring downturn lies with football director Carsten V. Jensen.

There were big smiles on the lips on 24 May last year, when Brøndby won the Danish Championship title for the first time in 16 years. Now the smile has hardened and Brøndby is in great sporting crisis. Seven defeats in a row. Ekstra Bladet's football expert Stig Tøfting points to Carsten V.

It is he who has bought the wrong players.

– We must state that the CV was too long to shop in the summer window. He hesitated for far too long, and that gave Niels Frederiksen poor working conditions.

– Mathias Greve and Kevin Tshiembe came into the transfer window too late, and they have not yet struck. However, I still have faith in them.

Carl Björk does not look like a qualified replacement for Mikael Uhre in the short term or in the long run.

– It also looks like a clear mistake disposition to extend the contract with Marko Divkovic until 2026. That extension took place at a time when the striker had not yet scored one goal in the Super League, says Stig Tøfting and states:

– I know that you can not hit the spot with all your purchases, but we are now where CV must deliver the item in the summer transfer window.

– I expect a major replacement at Brøndby this summer. And I envision a resume picking up players from a higher shelf. Having said that, there is no way he can afford not to find the right players for Brøndby in another transfer window, points out Stig Tøfting.

The football director himself has helped to create the conditions for increased investments by making Brøndby a healthy business.

– After many years with red numbers, CV has helped to create a stable business. It’s impressive work. With the latest profit of DKK 83.4 million. DKK, we can also expect more investments.

The many mistakes on the purchasing side mean that the arrow only points to the football director, and therefore Stig Tøfting is close to completely protecting Niels Frederiksen.

Throughout his Brøndby time, Niels Frederiksen has navigated in unknown waters. He has roughly paved, while Brøndby has played matches with many replacements along the way.

– He has delivered uniquely with the championship and proved he is able to develop the young players from his own breeding, where two of them (Jesper Lindstrøm and Morten Frendrup) have been sold on for large sums.

– And by the way, I can not see at all who Brøndby should bring in instead of Niels Frederiksen. For me, it does not make sense at all to talk about a firing of the Brøndby coach, assesses Stig Tøfting.
