Sweden International

Stefan was still recovering from an achilles injury suffered in the 1999-2000 season at the beginning of last term, and it was not until shortly before Christmas that he finally returned to first-team action for Sunderland. A tremendous competitor on the left side of midfield, he scored his only goal of the campaign in the 4-1 win over Ipswich on New Year's Day and went on to secure a regular place in the line-up for the remainder of the season. An experienced figure in the centre of the park, his calm approach brought much greater stability to the Wearsiders' midfield.
