Biography


Magnus was a former Swedish under-21 internationalist defender who had started his career with Orebro SK, making the step up to the first team in 1989. He spent eight years at the Eyravallen stadium, playing alongside his future United teammate Lars Zetterlund for most of that time, competed in the UEFA Cup with the Swedish side in the early 1990s, and finished as Allsvenskan runners-up in 1991 and 1994.

After a spell with Chinese side Dalian Wanda he signed for United in September 1997, becoming manager Tommy McLean's seventh Scandinavian signing. He made his debut against Hearts and was a regular in the side for the next two years. Collecting a runners-up medal against Celtic in the League Cup final in 1997, he is mostly remembered for scoring the opening goal in a 2-1 victory over Dundee in the first SPL game of the 1999-00 season.

After appearing in the first five matches of that campaign, Magnus was less frequently under manager Paul Sturrock in his last season at the Club, he returned to Sweden to sign for with Gothenburg based club GAIS in 2000, where he finished his career three years later. He went on to become a director at the club, later returning to his first club Orebro as technical director.
