“Now William Lundin, 30, takes his place as the new assistant coach and Lee Baxter, 46, as the goalkeeper coach.

“Lee Baxter played in IFK Gothenburg during the 2004 season alongside Bengt Andersson, among others. During his playing career, he also represented clubs such as Malmö FF, AIK, Glasgow Rangers and Sheffield United.

“Since 2008, he has worked as a goalkeeper coach in AIK, Turkish Genclerbirligi, Danish AGF Aarhus, South African Kaizer Chiefs and the South African national team.”
