Lagerback returns to Swedish FA as adviser

Former Sweden and Nigeria coach Lars Lagerback is returning to

the Swedish Football Association as a technical adviser.

The Swedish FA says the 62-year-old Lagerback will advise the

secretary-general and other executives. The part-time job is for

one year.

Lagerback wants to keep his options open, though, saying that

”if there is a coaching offer in the near future I will discuss

the situation with my employer.”

Lagerback was Sweden coach 2000-09 and led Nigeria during the

2010 World Cup in South Africa.
