Johan Mårtensson (born 16 February 1989) is a Helsingborgs IF.

Mårtensson has played 7 matches for Sweden U21. He likes to play as a central midfielder.


During his career at GAIS, he first came from the third tier club Skövde AIK and therefor had some time to adapt to compete at a higher level. Mårtensson did the progress pretty fast and he shortly became a key player at GAIS's midfield. He showed that he was a great box to box player with good stamina, but also good vision for the game that worked out well with his capable technique. Although he's quite young and been capped several times for the Swedish U21 team, he is a bit underrated, maybe because GAIS isn't one of the biggest club in Allsvenskan. During the 2011 season of Allsvenskan Mårtensson had improved even more since the season before and showed that on the pitch. A bunch of European clubs were following him, with especially some sharp eyes from the Dutch club of FC Utrecht.

FC Utrecht

On 9 July 2011, both GAIS and FC Utrecht confirmed that Mårtensson had signed a four year contract with the Dutch side.[1] It was an undisclosed fee, but Mårtensson was valued at about 1.5 million Euros at that time.
