Weight74 kg

PositionDefender/Centre back

A cultured central defender who is comfortable on the ball and reads the game well, Rene began his senior career with AB Copenhagen before moving on to join Panathinaikos in 1999. He won his first international cap against Scotland in March 1998 and is now a regular in the national squad. An ever-present in the qualifying campaign for the 2002 World Cup finals, as well as being more accustomed to regularly playing in humid conditions, he also benefited from his spell with the Greek club by reaching this season's European Champions' League quarter-finals. He would appear to be a certain starter in Japan and South Korea.
