After a bad start of the season, the announcement came on November 25, 2018 that HV71 kicked Johan Lindbom. Since then, the gold manager has managed to move to Oland in Skane and last week concluded that he is close to the role of club manager in the newly formed Swedish club Kristianstad.
Yesterday, the club for Kristianstadsbladet confirmed that the parties were verbally agreed.
– This is a classic club management role. Mikael Gat is a coach and sports manager, but Johan can answer sporting issues if needed. If they want to talk to him, it's not forbidden, but that's not Johan's main role, says Kristanstad chairman Sune Lundberg in front of the newspaper.
Prior to joining the HV71 carriage in 2015, Johan Lindbom was hired by HK Dalen Hockey Club, where he is also a coach and sports manager, and he is also involved in many other club activities.
