This year he has won Sweden’s Golden Ball award. After getting his it, the defender thanked Mourinho for his huge contribution in the player’s career and shared his hope for the manager’s return to his job.
He told Aftonbladet: “He is, after all, one of the world’s best coaches and he is supposed to have a job at one of the biggest clubs. I miss him in football. He’s a great coach and a great person, whom I owe a great deal. It was he who gave me the chance here, who brought me into everything. I have all the respect in the world for him and appreciate everything he has said and done for me, from scolding to a hug. Even if I did not agree, at the time… he has very great charisma, you had great respect for him. He’s won everything. When he says something, you listen.”
