things about Stefan...
Thanks to Staffan Noteborg for most of this information
- born: 18th April 1965
- joined Arsenal: from Benfica in May 1994 for £1.8million
- His father is from Germany.
- He played as a youth-pro in Bayer Leverkusen
- Malmo FF bought him. Malmo had a very strong team at that time with among
others: Martin Dahlin (Bor.M.Gladbach), Patrik Andersson (Bor.M.Gladbasch),
Jonas Thern (Roma), Roger Ljung (MSV Duisburg) and Roy Hogdson (Swizz national
side) as coach.
- Bayern Munchen wanted to buy him, but only if he would throw his swedish
passport and become a german. He disagreed because he knew that one day
he would be good enough for the Swedish national team.
And in 1995, when he left Arsenal, the same problem made him turn from Germany to Italy for his next career move.
- He was one of the best players in a catastrophic swedish team in Italy '90.
But in the last game against Costa Rica, he made a terrible mistake that
led to Costa Ricas second goal (2-1).
- After that he went to Benfica, where he played until joining Arsenal.
- It's pronounced the German way (to rhyme with "hearts")
- He left Arsenal for Fiorentina in the summer of 1995.
- Swedish Championship medal 1987/88 (with Malmo)
- Swedish Cup medal 1989 (with Malmo)
- Portuguese Championship medal 1991/92 (with Benfica)
- Portuguese Cup medal 1993 (with Benfica)
- Portuguese Championship medal 1993/94 (with Benfica)
- Third place medal - World Cup 1994
- Man of the tournament - Makita 1994
