"More about Djurgården" Allmänna Idrottsklubben - AIK Tip by Calcio

Djurgården was formed in 1891, and for me they feel as classic as AIK Stockholm. Although when AIK was playing in Europe during the end of the 1990-ties, Djurgården were stuck in the second division.
They have had a tough period the last 20 years, where a final against Malmö FF in the middle of the 1980-ties was their biggest success.

One of their biggest stars ever is Stefan Rehn, now an assistant manager in the club, who later played for Everton, Lausanne and IFK Göteborg. In the last club he had a fantastic career, and is still cheered on everytime Djurgården meets IFK. Probably one of the most popular persons from Stockholm ever in Göteborg.

The last seasons their biggest stars have been, except for three mentioned above, Andreas Johansson and Tobias Hysén. The later, son to Glenn Hysén, once the captain for Liverpool and a star at Fiorentina, will most probably be sold during the next season, being one of the best players in Allsvenskan.
