Jesper Blomqvist

Date of birth05 February 1974
Place of birthTavelsjo
NationalitySwede
Weight73 kg
Height1.75 m
PositionMidfielder

A deceptively quick left wing man who played a big part in United's treble season (1998-99). After two injury-plagued seasons it was no surprise that Manchester United did not renew his contract when it expired in the summer of 2001. However, Blomqvist was determined to fight his way back and continued to train with the United squad at his own expense. Although he was unable to persuade his old club to give him a new deal his attitude so impressed Sir Alex Ferguson that he recommended the player to Walter Smith at Everton.
