Per Tomas Brolin (born 29 November 1969) is a Swedish former professional football player who played as a forward or as a midfielder. At club level, he had a successful period with A.C. Parma during the early 1990s, winning the 1992 Coppa Italia, the 1993 Cup Winners' Cup, the 1993 UEFA Super Cup and the 1995 UEFA Cup.
At international level Brolin also played for the Sweden national team, finishing third in the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Brolin was also a member of the Sweden squad beaten in the semi-finals at UEFA Euro 1992, as well as having competed in the 1990 World Cup.
Although a class act in his youth, in 2007 he was voted in at Number 2 in The Times poll of the "50 Worst footballers (to grace the Premier League)", reflecting his dismal downturn in form after he signed for Leeds United in 1995.
His once glittering career never recovered after the transfer to Leeds United, and by the age of 28 he had retired from playing due to several injury struggles.Close
