He previously managed Alets IK, Laholms FK and Halmstads BK.[1] He took over Örgryte IS in December 2009, they were already relegated to the Swedish 2nd division.[1] In 2011, he became manager for IFK Norrköping who made comeback in Allsvenskan. In 2015, he became a local hero[according to whom?] when IFK upset the odds and won the league after they defeated former champions Malmö FF away in the last game.[citation needed]

As Sweden headcoach he led the team to the 2018 FIFA World Cup after finishing second in Group A and beating Italy 1–0 on aggregate in the play-offs.[citation needed]


One of his role models is former Swedish handball coach Bengt Johansson, who is from the same neighbourhood (Söndrum) in Halmstad and served as his sports teacher back in primary school.[2]
