Jonas Sandqvist (born 6 May 1981), is a retired Swedish football goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Sandqvist previously played for Landskrona BoIS where he got a big breakthrough during the 2004 season in Allsvenskan. After the 2005 season, he left the club for the rivals Malmö FF and he rescued the team in many games, as the defence was leaking. After expressing his intent to leave the club as bosman, Malmö FF bought Johan Dahlin as new first goalkeeper and as Sandqvist failed to find a new club he sat on the bench for the rest of the 2009 season. On December 16, 2009 Atromitos F.C. agreed terms with Sandqvist for 2.5 years, starting on 1 January 2010. Sandqvist stayed on the bench for 2010, had no chances in Atromitos and on 7 December 2010 he was released from his contract. Sandqvist had a trial with Championship side Middlesbrough and was asked to stay longer but instead accepted a contract from Aalesunds FK. He had his first European level game for Aalesunds FK against Neath in the first qualifying round of the Europa League. Aalesunds FK won 4–1. On November 14, 2011 he signed a multiple year-contract with the Swedish club Örebro SK. He also played for Icelandic Keflavík before returning to Landskrona BoIS.[1]
