Lars-Åke Lagrell (born January 20, 1940, outside Växjö) is a Swedish sports personality who was the President of the Swedish Football Association between 1991 and 2012.[1][2] In 2002 Prime Minister of Sweden Göran Persson appointed him Governor of Kronoberg County.[3] He continued to serve in both positions until 2006 (when he left the position as Governor),[4] which has sparked some criticism because his football engagements were mainly in Solna, outside Stockholm, while as Governor he worked from Växjö. Both are essentially full-time positions.
