Johan Mjallby

Read all the news about Johan Mjallby. Johan Mjallby was born in Stockholm on 9 February 1971 (age 48).

His solid performances for club and country caught the eye of Jozef Venglos, coach at Celtic. In November 1998 Johan Mjällby signed for Celtic for a fee of around £1,200,000 and was given 35 as his squad number, which he retained throughout his time at Celtic.

The rest of season 1998/99 saw Johan play increasingly in the role of central defence, a role in which he grew to prominence.
