‘I love it here’ – Striker on ending his Lions blues and rediscovering happiness at Bolton Wanderers

Former Millwall striker Jon Dadi Bodvarsson has talked about how contented he is at Bolton Wanderers.

The Icelandic international struggled to hold down a starting spot at the Lions and left in January.

Bodvarsson, 29, scored seven goals in 21 League One appearances for Bolton.

He told The Bolton News: “It is important for players who have been in the same position as I was – in a dip at Millwall – not to be too emotionally attached to it.

“You have to keep going, working hard, stay fit, because eventually it won’t be that bad, something positive will come out of it.

“I just stuck to it and eventually you will find a place where you are loving it and you are getting that same energy back to you, the love, and you need it as a player.

“And sometimes it is just about luck where you land. You never know until you are actually at the place how it is going to be.

“You get all the promises in the world when you join a club, obviously, but you never really know until you are there.

“Thankfully for me every box is checked here at Bolton and I love it here.”
