Benny Persson new AIK coach
Former Djurgården coach Benny Persson has signed a three year contract with AIK. Persson, who has a history coaching AIK's men's development team, says he's proud being asked and is looking forward to take AIK's women to the top.
Persson has extensive experience coaching men's team just below the two top divisions and took Djurgården's women to one third and two second places during his two and half year stay. AIK's Peter Johansson says that "we have been looking for an experienced and competent coach and with Benny we have a coach that knows women's football well and knows what it takes to be a top team".
This announcement also means that Pia Sundhage, who was on the short-list and met with AIK's management last week, still is available for other positions.
