• Played the game only until his late teens. Began coaching at junior level before taking on his first senior posts with Swedish second-tier sides Väsby, Brommapojkarna and Vasalund.

• Joined Allsvenskan outfit Degerfors in 1994 and moved on a year later to AIK. Guided the Stockholm club to three successive Swedish Cup finals, losing the first, in 1995, and winning the next two. Lifted the cup for a third time in 2000 with his next team Örgryte after two-legged final victory against AIK. Stayed for six seasons before going abroad in January 2004 to coach Danish side AaB.

• Led AaB to the 2007/08 Danish Super League title – just the third championship in their history – yet announced mid-season he would be leaving at the end of the campaign for Rosenborg.

• Masterminded runaway Tippeligaen title triumph for Rosenborg in his first full season. Replaced long-serving Sweden coach Lars Lagerbäck in November 2009, also remaining with Rosenborg until the onset of UEFA EURO 2012 qualification in September 2010.

• Proved an immediate success in his new role, guiding Sweden to the finals thanks to a defeat of the Netherlands on the last day of qualifying, though they fell in the group stage. Missed out on the 2014 FIFA World Cup in a play-off with Portugal.
