The promising 19-year-old Endre Osenbroch has extended his contract with the light blues. The youngster received a professional contract in March, and he is already extending the 2025 season.
The protagonist himself is happy to commit himself to the club in the next few years:
– It feels good, this is where I want to be.
– I have been given many opportunities and am happy to tie myself to the club until the 2025 season, says Osenbroch.
A lot has happened since Osenbroch had the opportunity to try out with Sandnes Ulf in January.
He gained a lot of confidence in training matches, impressed, joined a training camp and was subsequently rewarded for his efforts with a professional contract.
– Things have gone quickly, and I have gained a lot of trust from the coaching team and feel that I have shown well again.
– Suddenly I had to start matches in the OBOS league, which was very big!
– Then I got kissing fever and have struggled a bit with injuries afterwards, but am now ready for the match away to YMCA Oslo on Sunday, says the youngster.
– In any case, it has been a fantastic six months, and I am very proud to have extended with the club, says Osenbroch.
Osenbroch thanks the coaching team for their good follow-up in recent years:
– I have received very close follow-up, and would particularly like to single out Arturo Cleveland, who has followed me for several years.
– He and the rest of the coaching team really care about me, and Bjarne has given me a lot of trust so far, which I want to show that I deserve.
When asked if he has any advice for young promising players in the region who want to achieve their dream of a professional contract, he says the following:
– I think the most important thing is to be patient, chances will come if you work hard over time, says Osenbroch, who is a shining example of this.
Managing director Øystein Elvestad is proud and happy that Sandnesgutten has extended his contract:
– Endre showed throughout the winter that he deserved a contract with Sandnes Ulf. It was therefore fully deserved that he signed a 2-year contract with Sandnes Ulf after the training camp in Turkey.
– In the first half of the season, he has gained a lot of trust from Bjarne Berntsen and has shown a very positive development, says Elvestad.
– We continue to invest in our own product and have today re-signed the agreement with Endre, an agreement that extends to the 2025 season and we have great faith that Endre will continue to make an impact on Sandnes Ulf in the future and are very happy and proud of that Endre is now a Sandnes Ulf player for a long time to come, concludes Elvestad.
