Swedish Influence on the Premier League

With the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Manchester, many Swedish fans are now following the Premier League. The Number 9 Striker is one of the most high profile people in Sweden having arrived at Old Trafford with a fierce reputation. Having played for FC Barcelona, Ajax, Milan and PSG the Swedish International is used to being in the spotlight and has started his Manchester United career already scoring in the first 2 games of the Premier League.

Which other Swedish players have made an influence on the Premier League, well we at e-Soccer.com have created a list to discuss these players.

Henrik Larsson

Similar to Zlatan, Henrik Larsson played in several different high profile teams, both of whom played for FC Barcelona and eventually Manchester United. Whilst he only played in the league for 1 year, his influence was enormous.

Henrik will always be known as a Glasgow Celtic Legend but he definitely made an impact in the Premier League even though he only actually scored 3 goals. Whilst he only made 7 appearances on Loan in England’s top flight he will go down in history for his positive impact on the team.

Larrson’s first goal for Manchester United came in the FA Cup game against Aston Vill at Old Trafford.

Fredrick Ljundberg 

Part of the Invincible Arsenal team which went unbeaten for 49 games, Ljundberg will go down in Arsenal history and is still a fans favourite. The ex Swedish International played over 10 years in the Premier League, finally ending up with West Ham and having scored over 70 times in 241 appearances. During the 2001-2002 season Ljundberg was arguably the best player for Arsenal’s double winning team, even scoring in the win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final. Playing in the same team as Henry, Overmars, Viera, Petit, Bergkamp and Adams, Fredrick or Freddie as he was called by the fans has probably made the biggest impact in the Premier League by any Swedish football player.

Olof Mellberg


This might be a surprise but Mellberg played for 7 years in the Premier League for Aston Villa in which he was the captain. The Swedish International player was voted the best player for his country in 2003 and also played for Juventus and Villarreal in his career. Whilst playing for Aston Villa he also became a fan favourite making a huge impact with his great defensive displays. Zlatan has labelled Mellberg as the ‘best Swedish defender of all time’.


Pogba Set to Break Transfer Record

France International Paul Pogba is set to break the world record when he joins Manchester United officially this week. The price tag is expected to be over 100 million euros and overpasses Real Madrid striker Gareth Bale’s fee of 85,000,000 price tag when he moved from Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester United expect to officially announce this long transfer saga within the next 48 hours and is already having a United Medical. Pogba famously left Manchester United on a free transfer only 4 years ago and headed to Italy where he starred for Juventus winning several trophies. The reason Manchester United let him leave is still a mystery but it was ultimately down to Alex Ferguson, the then Manager of the team.

Having been the best player in Italy for 2 seasons as well as excellent performances in the France shirt has meant the price tag is beyond all previous football transfers.

Will he shine for Jose Mourinho’s team this season or will he under perform, critics believe that he doesn’t perform in the big games. Will he justify the biggest price tag in the world or will United regret the signing. Whilst his price tag is extreme, only a handful can doubt his ability.

Manchester United have purchased Zlatan Ibrahimović and Baily in this transfer window and are likely to be involved in more business when this closes in 3 weeks.
