Jonatan Johansson

Where is Jonatan Johansson now?

After six seasons spent with Charlton Athletic, Jonatan Johansson retired from playing in 2011 after a season at former club TPS in the Finnish League.

Before his spell in the Premier League, he enjoyed a successful spell in Scotland with Rangers where he was a member of the squad which won the domestic treble in 1999 and the domestic double the following year.

He was also a member of the Finnish national team and won 106 caps between 1996 and 2010 and is the third highest scorer for his country with 22 goals.

Married to Scottish TV presenter and broadcast journalist reporter Jean Johansson, the couple moved back to Scotland in 2012 where he was appointed reserve team coach at Greenock Morton.

He left the role later that year to take the position of under 20’s coach at SPL club Motherwell.

Johansson left in July 2015 after three successful seasons at the club.

In December 2016 he made a return to football coaching when he was appointed as assistant manager of the Finland national side.

Five months later he made a return to the Scottish Premier League when he was appointed as an assistant coach to new Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha.

Upon the sacking of Graeme Murty in May 2018, Johansson and fellow coach Jimmy Nicholl were placed in charge of first team affairs for the remainder of the season but left upon the appointment of Steven Gerrard.

He wasn’t out of football for long and was appointed as manager of Scottish Championship side Greenock Morton in September 2018, making a return to the club after a five-year absence.

Unfortunately his tenure only lasted one season and he left after the club decided not to exercise the option of retaining him for the second year of his contract.
