Pontus Farnerud has officially joined Strasbourg, linking up with his brother Alexander.
After a season on loan at the Racing club in 2003/2004, the 25-year-old has signed a three-year permanent deal.
Following five seasons with Monaco, the Swede wanted regular first team football.
"I am happy to find everyone again at Strasbourg," he stated. "It is true, at first, I wanted to experience a foreign league but I didn't have any opportunity.
"Strasbourg will play in Europe, which is a little bonus.
"It is also a team that has showed excellent performance during the second part of the season.
"Moreover, I will rejoin my little brother Alexander and I prefer to play with him rather than against him."
