MD Management is Scandinavia’s leading football agency, representing players in clubs across the world.
Martin Dahlin was at his prime considered as one of the worlds best strikers and in 2001 shortly after finishing his own carrier he founded the agency in order to help young, talented players on their way to becoming professional football players.
From his own experience, Dahlin knows that in order to reach the top level, a player must not only work hard but also have great support from trusted people around him to successfully navigate the ups and downs of his career. He established MD Management to do just that.
Having been fortunate enough to play for over a decade alongside world-class players, many of Dahlin’s former teammates and opponents also stayed in the football business after hanging up their boots. Many of them now work as sporting directors, managers, coaches, scouts and board members at elite clubs throughout the world. Such an unparalleled network allows MD Management to provide the players it represents with unsurpassed support throughout their careers.
