Stig Tofting

Date of birth14 August 1969
Place of birthAarhus
NationalityDanish
Weight80 kg
Height1.76 m
PositionMidfielder

A combative midfield player who is full of energy, Stig, who has successfully assisted Bolton Wanderers to Premiership survival since his £250,000 move from SV Hamburg in February, can now turn his attention to engineering Denmark's World Cup bid. He won his first cap against the USA back in January 1993 but had to wait a further five years before he became a regular in the national squad. He appeared in nine of his country's ten qualifying games. At club level, he has spent time with AGF Aarhus, OB Odense and MSV Duisburg. A former forklift driver and a man with a tragic and colourful past, he has a large tatoo with the words 'no regrets'. Stig is likely to line up in the middle of midfield in the Far East alongside Everton's Thomas Gravesen.
