Fredrik Berglund (born March 21, 1979) is a Swedish association football player who currently plays for IF Elfsborg in Allsvenskan. Fredrik Berglund is nicknamed Bella. He played previously for F.C. Copenhagen and Esbjerg fB in Denmark and Roda JC of the Netherlands. Fredrik Berglund has been capped 12 times for the Swedish national team and has scored two goals. He got his debut with the national side on February 10 2001 in a friendly against Thailand. He is known for his quick pace and his occasional ability to score goals.

Success in Sweden - Hard Times in the Netherlands

Berglund started his professional carrier with IF Elfsborg and was a key player together with Anders Svensson and Tobias Linderoth, the three of them were nicknamed "The Headband Gang". In the 2000-season he was top goalscorer of the Swedish League and he attracted interest from foreign based clubs and eventually signed for Dutch side Roda JC in a 750.000 EUR deal.

Berglund had a hard time in the Netherlands and after a year and a half, he was sent on loan back to Sweden and IF Elfsborg. He returned to the Netherlands for the remaining of the 2003-2004 season and played a few games.

Time in Denmark

In the spring of 2004 he moved to Danish side Esbjerg fB who paid a record transfer fee of 150.000 EUR for the fast forward. Berglund made his debut for Esbjerg on March 14 2004 in a game against Brøndby IF away. Berglund scored two goals and had three assist in the 6-1 chrushing of the Danish giants.

Berglund played two and a half years in Esbjerg before he was transferred to Danish champions F.C. Copenhagen in the summer of 2006. He played only one season with the club, playing 52 games (League, cup, Royal League and UEFA Champions League) and scoring 18 goals. He once again played alongside former teammate Tobias Linderoth.

In the spring of 2007 the club brought in Brazilian striker Ailton Almeida whose arrival pushed Berglund out of the starting line-up and when F.C. Copenhagen in the summer of 2007 signed Danish international forward Morten Nordstrand, Berglund was suddenly fourth or fifth choice for one of the two slots in the Copenhagen attack. So only a few days after Nordstrands arrival, Berglund moved back to Sweden and signed once again with IF Elfsborg. The transfer was reported to be 4,9 million DKK, 750.000 EUR.

Berglund played his first game for Elfsborg July 12, 2007 when he came on as a substitute in a 2-0 victory at home against AIK.

Fastest player to score 50 goals in Denmark

On November 26 2006 he beat Erik Bo Andersen's record of quickest person to score 50 goals in the Danish Superliga. Andersen had used 97 matches to score the 50 goals, but Berglund could, with a goal against Randers FC, score his goal no. 50 after 93 matches [da icon [http://fck.dk/index.php?pageid=754&newsid=6240 Fredrik Berglund sætter rekord] , "F.C. Copenhagen", Daniel Rommedahl, 2006-11-27] .
