HOW ACQUIRED: Signed on Dec. 13, 2017.
Tinnerholm is an experienced right back who has excelled at the top of Swedish soccer for the last few years. The 26-year-old was named the 2017 Allsvenskan Defender of the Year and should provide stability and quality at the right back position for Patrick Vieira.
INTERNATIONAL: Tinnerholm has earned seven caps for the Swedish national team (as of Dec. 13, 2017) since he made his debut in 2015 and he will be hoping that his performances with NYCFC will help him earn a spot on the plane to Russia next summer.
OUTSIDE MLS: Tinnerholm arrives in New York City with UEFA Champions League experience under his belt, after he helped Malmo to the group stages of the 2015/16 competition where he faced off against Real Madrid, PSG and Shakhtar Donetsk. Before joining Malmo, Tinnerholm represented Brokinds IF and IK Ostria Lamohov at the youth level, before spending six years at Atvidabergs FF where he made his pro debut and featured in more than 100 games.
