Jesper Blomquist

Lars Jes­per Blom­qv­ist, born Tavelsjo, Swe­den, Feb­ruary 5, 1974. Jes­per Blom­quist joi­ned Man­chester Uni­ted from Parma for a trans­fer fee of £3.4 mil­lion in the sum­mer of 1998. Af­ter be­ing han­ded his Pre­mier Lea­gue de­but for Uni­ted in a 4-1 tri­umph ag­ainst Charl­ton Ath­let­ic at Old Traf­ford on the 9th of Septem­ber 1998, the schemer played 25 Pre­miership mat­ches for the club and was part of the si­de that won the coveted tre­ble in the 1998-99 season.

Un­for­tu­nately, a dev­ast­at­ing knee in­jury bro­ught a pre­ma­ture end to Jes­per Blomqvist’s Man­chester Uni­ted ca­reer. As des­tiny would have it, his last ga­me for Uni­ted proved to be the un­for­get­table 2–1 tri­umph ag­ainst Bay­ern Mu­nich at the Camp Nou in Bar­celona in the Cham­pi­ons Lea­gue Fi­nal on the 26th of May 1999. The Swede ev­entually joi­ned for­ces wi­th Wal­ter Smith´s Ever­ton si­de in Nov­ember 2001, but the mid­fielder on­ly ma­naged to make 15 Pre­mier Lea­gue ap­pear­ances for the Good­ison Park out­fit be­fore de­cided to move on to Charl­ton Ath­let­ic the fol­low­ing year. Af­ter strug­gling wi­th per­sist­ent in­jur­ies, he fi­nally re­turned to his home­land where he sig­ned a con­tract wi­th Stock­holm club Djur­garden in 2003. A Swe­den in­ter­na­tion­al, Blom­qv­ist notched up 30 seni­or out­ings for The Blue Yel­low af­ter ma­king his de­but as a sec­ond ha­lf sub­sti­tute for fel­low mid­fielder Stefan Land­berg in a goal­less Rob­bie Cup draw ag­ainst Columbia at The Joe Rob­bie Sta­dium in Miami on the 18th of Jan­uary 1994, and help­ed the coun­try of his bir­th to third place at the 1994 Wor­ld Cup in the Uni­ted States.
