PLAYER PROFILE

United’s first signing of summer 2016 arrived from Swedish outfit Kalmar FF on a three-year deal to end weeks of speculation linking him with a move to the Championship.

Antonsson, who was the Swedish top-flight’s leading goalscorer at the time of his switch to Elland Road, previously worked under assistant coach Pep Clotet during his time with homeland side Halmstads BK.

The striker enjoyed a prolific run of 22 goals from 40 matches prior to joining United, and Antonsson marked his first start for his new club with a brace in a pre-season friendly victory over Shamrock Rovers in Ireland.
