The 31-time Hungarian Champion Ferencváros signed today the Norwegian Champion, FK Molde’s right back, Henry Wingo. The 25-year old American right back and winger played last against our team in the Champions League play-off match in September.

Then, in 2019 august, he signed overseas, to Molde. In his first Norwegian season they won the league and the right to participate in the Champions League qualifiers.
Molde played successfully up until the playoffs, where they met our side: the American defender was on the pitch during the entire first leg (ending with 3-3), later, after Ferencváros proceeded to the group stage, participated in the Europa League with Molde. Out of the 6 appearances in EL, Wingo played throughout 4 matches: twice against Arsenal and also against Dundalk and Rapid Wien. Molde collected 10 points and qualified for the next rounds in the Europa League.
