“If I fall and tell the gaffer I was out skiing, I don’t think that’s going to be a valid reason. “Every time I go to the mountains I try to go skiing or snowboarding, but I make sure I try to stay safe. ”Away from the snow and plants, Sol describes himself as a “hybrid” on the grass. One half of him is an old-school defender who will throw his body on the line, but the other is comfortable with the modern-day demands of being able to handle the ball at his feet.
“I’ve heard it’s quite direct here, that suits my style, ” Sol adds. “I love defending to my own goal. The 18-yard box is my area. “But I was brought up to be a central midfielder and didn’t become a centre-back until I was 16, so I’m very comfortable using the ball. ”The 26-year-old demonstrated those skills across a four-year spell at Norwegian side Mjondalen, where he has spent the last two seasons playing top-flight football. Sol’s performances caught the interest of a number of clubs, and he was in fact close to penning a deal with another side before Motherwell’s interest instantly grabbed his attention. It has been the defender’s dream to play outside his country, and the opportunity to come to Fir Park simply too good to turn down. Not only was plying his trade in Scotland’s top flight a huge selling point, but also the fact he will be representing a club with “good core values” who “take care of their own”.
“Lewis was so humble, ” Sol – as he is referred to by his team-mates – recalls. “As part of my contract with Puma, I get to attend these cool yearly events and he was there. “I was sent as an ambassador from Norway. I also went with Todd Cantwell from Norwich City. “I tried to suck out as much information as I could in the two or three minutes I had with Lewis because he’s a plant-based athlete and so am I. “I’ve been plant-based for two years now, but I wanted to get info on how you perform at his level when you don’t eat meat.
