The making of Anders Svensson

We visit Guldhedens IK to find out about the start of the Swede's footballing journey.

The UEFA Training Ground travel to Sweden and visit Guldhedens IK, a small grassroots club in Gothenburg where Anders Svensson began his journey from budding talent to captain of his country. Svensson tells us his memories of this time, while we hear why those at the club today hold the midfielder in such high regard, even naming a pitch after him.
