Karl Sebastian Ring (born 18 April 1995) is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for Allsvenskan club Örebro SK as a left-back.

Club career[edit]

Örebro SK[edit]

Ring started his football career at a young age with local side Adolfsbergs IK.[1] He played for the first team in Division 4, until signing a 2-year youth contract with Örebro SK before the 2013 season.[2] The following summer, Ring went on loan to BK Forward for the remainder of the contract and played 33 league games with the side in Division 1.[3][4] In January 2015, Örebro offered Ring a senior contract, which he accepted.[5]

During the 2015 Allsvenskan season he was an unused substitute for the team, being the second choice behind Logi Valgarðsson in the left-back position. He however made his senior debut in Svenska Cupen, when he started in the 3–0 win against BKV Norrtälje.[6] During the pre-season for the following season, Valgarðsson picked up an injury, which opened a spot for Ring in the starting eleven.[7] He made his Allsvenskan debut in the premier game of 2016 Allsvenskan against Djurgårdens IF.[8] On 23 July 2016, he scored his first Allsvenskan goal in a 3–1 win against Falkenbergs FF.[9]

Style of play[edit]

Ring is a technical left-footed offensive player, who is originally a central midfielder but was ordered to play as wing back for Adolfsberg, a position he has played ever since.[1][7]

Personal life[edit]

Sebastian grew up in a sports-oriented family in Örebro, Närke. His older brother Jonathan is a footballer as well, currently playing for Djurgårdens IF.[10] He also played floorball and ice hockey in his youth, until he focused full-time on football.[7]
