Enjoyed very calm and solid last season, with the team’s development seemingly going further in the right direction during the winter months. Household manager Magnus Pehrsson (Allsvenskan champion with Malmo in 2 of last 3 years) was appointed in charge this winter. Also the squad was strengthened well. Only 2 regulars left this winter, with Fejzullahu losing his starting role last September anyway, while Pehrsson attracted quality new signings for every area of the pitch to boost the depth and the rotation options. El Kabir was probably the biggest name to join Kalmar this winter, with striker expected to become the new main figure up front. He has Diouf, Soderqvist and several youngsters to help him too. The arrival of 5 new midfielders should be enough to provide options in that area, with the defence also expected to be solid as the departure of Dyrestram was compensated by the signings of centre-backs Lofqvist and Aliti. Continue to have exotic flavour too with 3 Brazilians and 3 Nigerians in the current squad. In general the squad is young, with only 5 players aged 30 or over. That said all 5 of them likely starters when fit and available and should have plenty of experience on the pitch at all times.

Target


The goal is top half finish and with good squad and proven manager at the helm Kalmar should be able to achieve that easily. Still seem to lack enough quality to challenge for top 3 finish though.

Season Review
2018

№10: Kalmar

Kalmar enjoyed a very easy season that saw them securing survival even before the summer break when the team’s form was impressive. Ever since May the Reds were cruising and playing without much motivation, but also without feeling any pressure. Despite having 4-5 players injured or suspended almost constantly throughout the campaign Kalmar showed good depth and with several promising youngsters coming strong through the ranks and the 3 winter Brazilian signings providing interesting options when they were needed the Reds started 2018 very well. Five wins and a draw in the first eight rounds even put Kalmar within a striking distance from the top 3, but the most important thing this start provided was an almost immediate double-digit lead over the bottom three. This relaxed the atmosphere in the squad and drop of the motivation was witnessed in the final 3 games before the summer beak as Kalmar collected a single point from them. The second part of the season was much poorer, Kalmar achieved only 4 wins in the 19 rounds from July onwards, but as 3 of these 4 wins were against sides below them and also thanks to strategic draws vs. Sirius, Dalkurd and Brommapojkarna the Reds remained well clear of any danger and they were simply cruising all campaign, with the safety officially confirmed with 4 games to spare. From August onwards coach Bergstrand started experimenting with his squad a lot and this gave a chance to numerous youngsters to shine, plus Kalmar tested formations with three, four and even five at the back. The goals were evenly split between the forwards, none of them was outstanding, but the most reliable players was centre-back Viktor Elm, who was the best defender of the team no matter what the formation at the back was, plus he scored 4 goals at the other end of the pitch. Winger Hiago also had decent first season in Sweden, despite being used mostly off the bench for long periods, with the talented Brazilian expected to be one of the main players of the team in 2019. His countryman Romarinho, who was mister consistency with his 29 starts – the only game he missed was due to suspension – is also very important figure for Kalmar in the heart of the midfield.
