The odd captain at the top of the list – among the world’s most loyal

Odd veteran Steffen Hagen (37) is in 4th place on a recent list of the players with the longest playing time in one football club.

It is the renowned research center Cies in Switzerland that has prepared the list of the most loyal club players across 60 leagues around the world.

The Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeyev tops the list. He has guarded the goal for CSKA Moscow for 21 years. Not far behind is Hagen, who extended his Odd contract in October and will soon embark on his 19th season in the white jersey.

Rizvan Utsjev in Akhmat Groznij and Ali Khaseif in Al-Jazira have both played 19 years for their clubs, and the duo also come ahead of the Odd captain.

Hagen’s loyalty to his club is one of the rarities in today’s football. But there are also big football names high up on Cies’ list. Among them are Thomas Müller (16 seasons at Bayern Munich), Koke (15 seasons at Atlético Madrid) and Athletic duo Iker Muniain and Oscar de Marcos (15 seasons).

Lars-Christopher Vilsvik (35) shares 46th place on the list with his 14 full seasons for Strømsgodset. Furthermore, Ulrik Saltnes (12 seasons in Bodø/Glimt) is on the list, which includes just over 100 names.

The overview applies to continuous time in one and the same club. This means that a player with, for example, two eight-year periods at a club would not be part of the list. (NTB)
