He played 190 games and scored four goals for Viborg FF in the Superliga, [1] over the span of ten seasons, before the club was relegated to the Danish 1st Division in the summer 2008. In May 2009, Tengstedt ended his career due to injury, having played a total 233 games and scored 12 goals for Viborg FF. [2]

Michael Gravgaard Danish footballer

Michael Julius Gravgaard is a Danish former football player, who effectively ended his playing career at FC Nantes in May 2010. Despite the fact of having a contract with FC Nantes until July 2011, his club was not interested to honour the contract, and opted instead in May 2010, to try to file him as "lifetime injured" towards their insurance company. When this attempt ultimately got unapproved by the French authorities, and Gravgaard had passed all additional health checks, the club then opted in January 2011, to dismiss him permanently from the club – a half year prematurely. Forced by that, Gravgaard announced in January 2011, that he would now end his active playing career for good, and that he would continue – at least for the next half year – to work as a football commentator, pundit and analyst, at the Danish TV channel Canal 9.
