SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that the club has transferred midfielder Magnus Eriksson to Sweden’s Djurgardens IF for an undisclosed fee.
“When Magnus arrived from Djurgardens in 2018, he had left a lasting impression in Sweden,” said Earthquakes general manager Jesse Fioranelli. “After two and a half years with us, we feel he has done the same as he now returns home to be closer to his family. As we look back, we realize we learned a lot about ourselves during his time with the club. Together we grew in confidence, courage and tenacity as a team and Magnus had a big part in that. Thank you, tack själv, Magnus!”
Eriksson, 30, joined the Quakes ahead of the 2018 MLS season. He has since started 66 of the team’s 73 regular season matches, making 69 total appearances. Eriksson tallied 13 goals and 14 assists in MLS play, while co-leading the club with three goals during the MLS is Back Tournament.
Eriksson previously competed for Djurgardens from June 2016 to December 2017 and was a finalist for the Swedish Allsvenskan's Most Valuable Player award during that time.
