On 24 March 1994, Arsenal manager at the time, George Graham, sold Anders Limpar to Everton for a reported £1.6m.
Limpar was at Arsenal for four years, signing from Italian club Cremonese in 1990 and being sold to Everton in 1994 for £1.6m. Previously, he’d played for IF Brommapojkarna, Örgryte and Young Boys.
During his time in north London, the Sweden international made 116 appearances, scored 20 goals and won the League in 1991, scoring a hattrick against Coventry on the final day of the season, which Arsenal won 6-1. He even won Sweden’s player of the year award – the Guldbollen.
Once Limpar signed for Everton in 1994, he played a huge part in their FA Cup win the following year and went on to make a total of 66 League appearances for the Toffees.
In 1997, he signed for Birmingham for £100,000. However, the move didn’t go too well. He made just four appearances before his contract was cancelled in April.
Limpar returned to Sweden before joining the MLS in 1999 to play with the Colorado Rapid.
After trying his hand at coaching, the former footballer became a business man, founding a Swedish company, which produces plastic boxes.
He currently is the CEO of betting site BestBetToday.com.
