Biography: Finnish defender, who fell out of favour at Ajax in 2003-04 and spent the second half of the season on loan at Pompey. Harry Redknapp was interested in buying Pasanen at the end of the season, but claimed Ajax's asking price was too high. The Finn was then signed by reigning German champions Werder Bremen in the summer of 2004. He has since helped them to a top three finish in the Bundesliga and the second round of the Champions League. A regular for the Finnish national team, he has also played in Finland futsal national team, where he has six caps and two goals. (Futsal is an indoor version of the game played with a smaller ball.)
