Olof Mellberg


Where is Olof Mellberg now?

An Aston Villa legend who captained the club for five years, Olof Mellberg retired from playing in 2014 after a short spell back in his native Sweden with FC Copenhagen.

Upon his retirement from playing, many players took to social media hailing his impact in the game including Swedish international team mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic who said that he was the greatest Swedish defender of all time.

After a brief break from the game Mellberg took the job as manager of Swedish third division side Brommapojkarna in November 2015.

Mellberg was tasked with turning round the fortunes of the club who were a mainstay in the Swedish top divisions for many years before their relegation to the third division in 2015.

In his first season at the club he made the first inroads into getting to the top division by winning the third division title and subsequently promotion to the second division.
