About me


I´m a thirty-two-year-old Finnish goalkeeper who is fighting his way back from a serious knee injury. The previous club I played for was the Russian side Spartak Nalchik. 

This is how someone has described me:

"Otto is a Finn playing in Russia; he has a German first name, Swedish last name, and home in Norway."

I have lived abroad in several different countries. Even though I currently reside in Norway will Finland always be closest to my heart.

Even though I was born in the small town of Valkeakoski in Southern Finland I consider the capital of Northern Finland, Oulu, to be my home town. That's where I spent the crucial years of my life at least when it comes to football. I return to Oulu at least once a year.

I am married and father of two.
