JOHAN MJALLBY will leave Celtic at the end of the season after 4 successful years as part of Neil Lennon’s backroom staff.
Johan intimated last month in an interview that he would like to go back to Sweden and coach there at some point and he has decided now is the right time to go pursue that.
As a player and a member of the coaching staff the big Swede has been a great servant to the club and we wish him all the best in his career.
The fans are sure to give him a great send off come trophy day next month.
We are going to miss that towering figure in the dug out!
Here is Mjallby’s Full Statement.
“I have enormous affection for Celtic Football Club and it is with sadness that the time to leave has arrived. However, I now leave to seek some different opportunities
“The Club has been part of my life for almost two decades and I have been dedicated to them in every way, first of all as a player and then in management.
“As a player, it was a time when we achieved great success and I had the privilege to work with football people and players who were first-class and real quality. We had some great moments and memories I will always cherish.
“It was an honour to return to the Club and work in management with Neil, Garry and the players, and we have worked hard over the last few years to once again bring the Club success.
“I hope Neil, the staff and the players can deliver many more trophies and titles for our fans in the future. I would like to sincerely thank all our supporters for all they have given me and everything they have given to the Club. They are special fans, the best I have ever seen in football.”
