Magnus Hedman

Where is Magnus Hedman now?

Former Coventry City goalkeeper Magnus Hedman retired from playing in 2007 after a spell at Chelsea where he failed to make an appearance.

However he did make a very brief comeback for 90 minutes in 2013 when he played for Swedish third-tier side Frej where he was working as a goalkeeping coach.

Playing for 17 years, Hedman made over 300 domestic first-team appearances, mostly for AIK in Sweden and Coventry City.

He was also the number one goalkeeper for the Sweden international side from 1997 to 2004 going onto win 58 caps.

Retirement for Hedman has been very eventful and he has admitted to blowing the money he earned through football on drugs, property and a general extravagant lifestyle.

He did have a spell as a commentator for Swedish television station TV4 but was unfortunately fired because of his party lifestyle.

A reformed character, he has turned his life around and now inspires others as a personal life coach as well as doing a spot of goalkeeper coaching on an ad-hoc basis.

In April 2017, Hedman’s two children narrowly avoided death in the Stockholm truck attack thanks to some quick thinking by his ex-wife.

Out on a shopping trip, the truck thundered towards them, but his ex-wife managed to grab the children and run into a cafe seconds before the attack which killed four people.
