Kai Nyyssönen

Kai NyyssonenPrior to joining Motherwell Kai Nyyssönen was a Finnish international having been capped twice by his country. It was Finnish manager, Harri Kampman that brought the forward to Fir Park at the beginning of the 1998/99 season on a short term deal. In his early appearances he suffered some ill fortune as not only did he break his nose in his debut versus East Fife in a League Cup tie, but he gave away a last minute penalty against Rangers at Ibrox which helped the side from Govan secure a 2-1 win. Kai did however repay some of the faith shown in him by Kampman as he would net the winner in the ‘Football for a Fiver’ initiative at the beginning of John Boyle’s ownership of the club, when a packed Fir Park saw the Steelmen record a 1-0 win over Dundee United. It was pretty much a transitional period for the club as not long later, Kampman left the club and was swiftly replaced by Billy Davies. Nyyssönen of course just seemed to vanish from the scene having made just the four appearances and one goal to his credit.
