Thomas Dennerby has resigned from his role as the Swedish women’s national team head coach, his last match as coach will be against the Netherlands on 15 September 2012.

Dennerby has been the head coach for eight years but he now feels that this is his time to end. He has wished his successor the best of luck for the European Championships (in Sweden 2013).

Dennerby has said that the decision to retire was his own and he is not sure what his plans are for the future.

Sweden will be on the look out for a new coach and will want to appoint someone sooner rather than later as we head closer to the European Championships and qualification for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015.

So, who will be Thomas Dennerby’s successor, could one of the most successful managers in the world Pia Sundhage be heading home?

    @ Lars Breimer Lotta Schelins injury was probably worse than what they wanted to admit and affected her playing something …. But Lotta clenched as the fighter she is.

    @ Lars Breimer. Sorry I’m a bit late with the reply @ Lars B. .. had some other things to do. Yes “Julgranen” or diamond can was good if it works. But in the case of Sweden, it worked only during 20-25 first minute and then disappeared in the match. This problem I saw in all of Sweden’s games during the Olympics. Outer midfielders who came up with a beginning did not come., the central midfielders (attacking) With Caroline Seger mainly poked and messed up the midfield more than they supported Lotta Schelin. So Lotta was isolated in attack., it was easy to read the Swedish game. in Sweden does not change game formation of players on the pitch but the decision is made by the coach. Its a big

    @ Lars Breimer .. regarding Caroline Seger, I would give you quite right. There is a player who is incredibly overrated here in Sweden. I have also been on the line that you would have picked her out. But there is further evidence of Thomas Dennerby he does nothing about things when things go wrong. My criticism is directed first and foremost against Dennerby and not really against the individual player This was just examples of things he would have thought of … and that many experts touched on before the Olympics began.
