AIK gamble on Money

Former Liverpool FC player Richard Money has signed a two-year contract as the new coach of AIK Solna.

Former Liverpool FC player Richard Money has agreed to replace Dusan Uhrin as coach of AIK Solna.

'Scandinavia's biggest club'
The 47-year-old Englishman will leave Coventry City FC, where he has been in charge of the club's youth academy, to take charge of the Stockholm side. "AIK is the right thing for me," said Money. "It's Scandinavia's biggest club and that makes it a very interesting challenge."
 
Replaces Uhrin
It is a first manager's job for Money, who has signed a two-year contract and becomes AIK's fourth coach in the past 12 months, following Olle Nordin, Peter Larsson and Uhrin. Former Czech Republic coach Uhrin resigned in November after six months in charge.

Coaching curriculum
Money has held coaching roles at Manchester City FC, Aston Villa FC and Nottingham Forest FC, and was also assistant manager to Roland Nilsson during his short spell as Coventry manager. He played for Liverpool from 1979-81 and ended his playing career in 1989 with Scunthorpe United FC.

Looking forward
He admitted his knowledge of AIK was, at present, limited. "I've read about them and I've seen some matches on tape. I know the fans were disappointed with the last season when the club finished fifth. I hope I can give the club some stability and make the players smile again." Besides finishing fifth in the Allsvenskan, AIK were losing finalists in the Swedish Cup final, beaten by city rivals Djurgårdens IF.
