Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Swedish cham­pion Malmo has ap­pointed for­mer Es­to­nia coach Mag­nus Pehrs­son to lead its team. The 40-yearold Pehrs­son re­places Al­lan Kuhn, who was fired four days ago even though he led the club to its 19th Swedish league ti­tle. Pehrs­son has pre­vi­ously coached Dan­ish team Aal­borg and Swedish club Djur­gar­den. He led Es­to­nia's na­tional team from 2013 un­til Septem­ber 2016. In fir­ing Kuhn, Malmo said the team needed a lead­er­ship change to step up its per­for­mance an­other notch.
