Thus the flying Dutchman’s second period in Mjøndalen came to an end. He first came to Mjøndalen before the 2017 season and then came from Finnsnes, where he had impressed both with his physique and football understanding. He started his first stay in the MIF suit injured, but the brown jerseys won nine out of ten possible victories when the Dutchman was finally ready to play in the autumn.
And Quint was to become a very important piece for us when we moved up to the Eliteserien in 2018 with the OBOS league’s stingiest defence. With Quint in central defence, the brown jerseys conceded only 24 goals in 30 games. He also took part in the 2019 and 2020 seasons in the Eliteserien with MIF, but before the 2021 season it became clear that AAFK became his new employer. Then the trip went back to the Eliteserien and Sandefjord in 2022 before he again returned to Mjøndalen on loan at a critical time for the club. This year, Quint, with his 32 years and long experience from top football, has been an important piece for a young MIF team.
To Cypriot top division
Quint Jansen’s new employer is Othellos Athienou FC and, when the season starts again, will debut in the Cypriot top division after winning the country’s second division in 2023.
– It is stupid for us to lose one of the team’s mainstays now, but funny that foreign clubs are following Mjøndalen and our players, says sporting director Bjørn Petter Ingebretsen in a comment.
Since Quint is not the club’s property, there is not much the club can do either. BP also emphasizes that they wish Quint to have this opportunity.
– He has delivered for Mjøndalen for several seasons, and now gets the chance to try himself at a level that is probably up in relation to the OBOS league, says BP in conclusion about the player, who ends up with 120 games and 14 goals for the brown jerseys.
