Jesper Mattson

Jesper Mattsson
Norwich Career: Trial (November 1998)
Current Club: Retired
Date of Birth: 18/04/1968
Nationality: Swedish


Swedish central defender Jesper Mattson (30) from Halmstad played for Norwich City reserves against Luton in a 6-0 victory on November 19th 1998. Although Jesper had a relatively quiet evening, he rose well to head the sixth goal. Norwich manager Bruce Rioch decided not to invest in signing Mattson for the Canaries. However this did not prevent Jesper from coming to England as he signed for Nottingham Forest in early December for £300,000. He made his English debut for Forest in their 3-1 Premiership defeat at Leicester on 12th December 1998.

Injuries forced Jesper to retire in 2000.
