In brief: By Swedish standards, MFF are another big club with a huge support base and more premierships than any other club. In 1979, they also become the first and to date only Scandinavian club to reach the European Cup final, where they lost to Nottingham Forest.
Over the past decade, they’ve also maintained a steady production line of talented young players, which apart from on field success, is also producing a steady revenue stream from transfer fees. Financially, few clubs are stronger.
Expectations in 2013: Malmö FF still boast a number of good young players from their 2011 league winning team, which will be complimented nicely by new recruits Magnus Eriksson and Erik Johansson. The big question is how many of these players will they sell before the season ends?
Players to watch: Captain Jiloan Hamad, Ivo Pekalski, Pontus Jansson and Simon Thern, are all likely to attract big bids once the transfer window opens in July.
