Kroon made his Allsvenskan debut in a match against Kalmar FF on 20 June 2011. Seven days later he made his debut in the starting eleven in a match against GAIS at Gamla Ullevi.[1] On 28 March 2013 Kroon signed a first team contract with Malmö FF until the end of the 2015 season.[2] A few weeks later he scored his first league goal for Malmö FF in the home fixture against Östers IF to seal a 2–0 win for Malmö.
