Earlier this summer Linköping announced Andreas Harnesk, previous coach of reigning women’s champions IKSU and SSL’s coach of the year 2016/17. Now, after only 8 games with the team, they’ve decided to split up.

After a weak silly season, Linköping’s roster going into this season looked on paper weaker compared to 2016/17. However the team has in their first 8 games showed a pretty strong performance, taking 4 victories and are currently in a spot for playoffs. This is why it came as a surprise to many that Andreas Harnesk and Linköping has decided to go different ways.

Harnesk comments the situation in a press release from Linköping:
”Of course I would’ve preferably continued the work since I believe there are fantastic people in the team and organization. At the same time I feel that we’ve go into a unsustainable situation where we don’t have a common ground in the work. Therefore I think it’s best for both parties to cancel our cooperation. Hopefully can the foundation we’ve built so far contribute to success and I wish the team good luck onward.”

Former head coach Johan Astbrandt will take over the team for the rest of the season.
