Yeah, so my background really starts with Malmö. I was here for I started 15 years ago in our academy, working in school sessions and Academy sessions a lot as a coach and then gone through age groups and also gone through a lot of methodology and scouting during the years and finally ending up with First Team as a coach. Going to England for two years working in other Clubs and then back as a Sporting Director.

Kitman Labs solves one challenge for us to make sure information flows freely within the Club, and between the department, between the teams, within the stops.

And to just to make sure it’s uniform and it’s in one place, we don’t risk losing it over time or we have it in different systems that don’t communicate with each other.

It’s like you don’t have time some time to stop and okay what is it now we need you needle in push at times to like man, we now
