Football - Swedish club Malmo appoints Pehrsson as new coach
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.
