Klas Inge "Klabbe" Ingesson (20 August 1968 – 29 October 2014) was a Swedish footballer and manager. He spent most of his career as a midfielder in Europe, mainly in Sweden, Belgium, Netherlands, England, Italy and France. Ingesson represented the Sweden national team on 57 occasions, including the 1990 and 1994 FIFA World Cup, as well as the 1992 European Championship. He was the manager of IF Elfsborg from 2013 to 2014 until his death in October 2014.

Playing career[edit]

He played for IFK Göteborg in Sweden, KV Mechelen in Belgium, PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands, Sheffield Wednesday in England, Bari, Bologna and Lecce in Italy, and Marseille in France.[2]

At Sheffield Wednesday, he encountered players "who went straight to the pub after training but still able to run like wild animals come Saturday".[2]

Coaching career[edit]

On 30 September 2013, Ingesson was appointed manager of IF Elfsborg.[3]

Personal life[edit]

On 14 May 2009, Ingesson announced that he had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma. The treatment was at the start said to be going "in the right direction".[4] Ingesson fully recovered and, on December 2010, made a football comeback by accepting an offer to guide the IF Elfsborg under-21 youth team.[5] On 8 January 2013, Ingesson revealed that the myeloma had returned, and that he would have a stem cell transplant, as the two previous autologous (i.e. of his own stem cells) had been unsuccessful.[6]

On 29 October 2014, Ingesson died of the effects of multiple myeloma.[7]
