The Swedish Prime Minister Goran Persson has offered his advice to joint coaches Tommy Soderberg and Lars Lagerback, imploring them to make the team more attacking.
Persson, who is recovering from a hip operation, has obviously been considering tactics ahead of Sweden’s opening game against Bulgaria on June 14th.
“Let (Freddie) Ljungberg play forward behind Henke (Larsson) and Zlatan(Ibrahimovic)”
“In midfield I want to see Christian Whilhelmsson and Mikael Nilsson out wide with Kim Kallstrom between them.”
“Football is like politics, it is the result that count.”
This is not the first time Persson has spoken out about football. In 2002 Persson attended a UEFA Congress that showcased the FIFA presidency candidates.
At the conference he addressed the members of UEFA claiming that football was “transfers, TV rights and advertising contracts.”
