Andreas Claes Andersson (born 10 April 1974 in Nacka, Sweden) is a Swedish footballer. A striker, he was capped by Sweden forty-two times (including the 2002 FIFA World Cup), scoring eight goals.
Domestically, he won the 1996 Swedish league title with IFK Göteborg, and also ending up as the topscorer scoring 19 goals. These performances earned him moves abroad to AC Milan and Newcastle United (for whom he played in the 1998 FA Cup Final). These spells proved largely unsuccessful, resulting in Andersson's return to Sweden with AIK.
Injury problems caused him to retire on August 1, 2005, with Andersson looking to remain in football as a coach. However, he resumed playing in 2010 with Swedish minnows FC Andrea Doria.Close
