Tomas Brolin

Brolin was once one the best footballers (or soccer players for those Americans out there!) in the world, especially during the 1994 world cup in the USA. As one of Swedens greatest ever players he was also in the dream team in the controversial Nike adverts where Eric Cantona kicked the ball through a demons chest. At the peak of his carrer Brolin represented Parma in the Italian Serie A.

Where are they now?

Newspaper reports claim that Brolin put on a serious amount of weight after a stint at lowly Crystal Palace and ended up as a hoover salesman in his native Sweden. This is apparently wrong, as of March 20/03 I have suddenly received a flurry of email telling me that he runs a niteclub called “Undici” in Stockholm. Thanks to all who wrote.

One response to “Tomas Brolin”

  1. Griff says:

    Former Sweden striker Tomas Brolin wants to improve his goal scoring tally for the national team – 12 years after retiring from football.

    The 40-year-old claims he should have been credited for a goal given to team-mate Roland Nilsson 19 years ago.

    Brolin, who struggled at Leeds after signing from Parma for £4.5m in 1995, told Sweden’s SVT that he scored 27 goals for Sweden, not 26 as recorded.

    The Swedish Football Association said it will look into the issue.
    Brolin now owns a restaurant in Sweden and has been a World Series Poker player.
