After winning the national title for the 30th time, HJK are now thinking about keeping their squad for next season in Finnish football. It was announced on social media that Papua New Guinean international David Browne had his contract with HJK extended until 2022.
Browne, who officially joined the club in February after spending a couple of weeks on trial, played most of HJK’s games during the season and had his contract deservedly renewed: “David is a technically skilled and fluent team player, whose qualities are in many respects suitable for the team’s way of playing. He has always adapted better and better to the club’s operating environment and its requirements, so it is good to continue this for the coming season,” said Miika Takkula, HJK’s Director of Sports and Development.
The 24-year-old winger became the first Papua New Guinean player to win a national league in Europe. He finished his debut season with three goal scored and seven assists in 21 official matches for HJK. With his contract renewed, Browne is expected to become an even more important part of the club next season. Oceania Football Center congratulate him for this accomplishment.
