Northern Leagues United Pen Pics #18

While the fans have not one but two Wembley heroes to back them up, the writers can counter with Pras Murukesvan. Like Tomas Brolin, Pras started his career as a highly-rated striker in his native Sweden.  Like Tomas Brolin, Pras ended up working in the Premier League.  Like Tomas Brolin…well, it’s surely just  a matter of time before he puts on six stone and starts selling Hoovers door to door.  A Blackburn and Juve fan, Pras manages the marketing department at Rovers during the day and every other weekend.

Positions: Started off as a striker until the Swedish defenders outgrew me and I moved to the right side of midfield

Teams played for: Märsta IK, IFK Stockholm, Sigtuna Alliansen, AIK, Arlanda FF in Sweden before moving to the UK and Newcastle for university studies.

Footballing highlight: Having a kick-about with Cafu at a H&M photo-shoot just months after he captained the Brazilian World Cup winning squad

Player you’ve modelled your game on: Not really modelled myself on anyone but enjoyed watching Lineker, Shearer, Baggio play the beautiful game when I was younger.
