Markus Jonsson (born 9 March 1981) is a professional Swedish football defender playing for Brann in Norway's Tippeligaen. He has previously played for Öster, AIK and Panionios.

Club career[edit]

He was born in Växjö, Sweden, and played seven seasons for his hometown team Östers. In November 2005, Jonsson signed for AIK on a free transfer, and managed to out-compete Jimmy Tamandi for the right-back spot at AIK. Impressive play from Jonsson made him frequently named as a contender for said spot in the national team.[citation needed]

More than just a skilled defender, Jonsson is known for his well-chosen offensive runs and precise crosses, forming a tremendous partnership with right winger Kenny Pavey.[citation needed] An excellent marksman from the penalty spot and AIK's first-choice penalty taker, Jonsson has stated in several interviews that he has never missed a penalty kick in a competitive match as a senior player. According to himself, he converted 25 penalties in a row when playing in Sweden.[1]

In January 2010 he signed for Panionios on a free transfer.[2] After two years in Greece, he signed for the Norwegian club Brann on 16 January 2012.[1]
