'Owls can re-live the great days'

11 November 2015


Roland Nilsson says the 2015/16 campaign could turn out to be one to remember for Sheffield Wednesday.

Regarded as one of the finest ever full backs to grace Hillsborough, Nilsson helped Wednesday to promotion from Division Two and played a pivotal role in the League Cup final win over Manchester United in the 1990/91 season.

During his career in S6, his faultless displays endeared him hugely to Wednesdayites and he quickly became a fans’ favourite in these parts.

Fast forward almost 25 years and with just one defeat in 12 in the Championship and into the quarter finals of the Capital One Cup, Nilsson is not ruling out a repeat of that memorable campaign.

He told swfc.co.uk: “I have great memories here and I follow the fortunes of this club. They are doing great so far.

“They are looking to be stronger this season and if they keep doing what they are doing it could turn out to be a very good season.

“Hopefully they can keep their good form going, keep that confidence and this club can re-live those great days.



“You need to have that team spirit to do well in the league and the cup, we had that back then and you can see many positive signs coming through now.”

As well as keeping up to date with the latest happenings at Hillsborough, Nilsson is busy with his coaching commitments in Sweden and he continued:

“I’m head coach for the national team of Under-15s, 16s and 17s in Sweden and that’s what I’m doing at this moment.

“The head coach of the national team is just a part of what I do, I educate coaches as well through 15-19s in the Premier League and second division.”
