Sweden beat Azerbaijan 5-0 in Stockholm and Janne Andersson joined some Swedish pundits to discuss the match. However, what started off being a question about Jesper Karlsson's game time ended up in a huge clash in between the national coach and former Manchester United player Bojan Djordjic.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's teammates had to bounce back from their terrible start to these Euro 2024 qualifiers. After losing 3-0 at home to Belgium, they desperately needed a win Monday in the Friends Arena.
They did what they had to do and didn't give a chance to Azerbaijan. Scoring five goals, including Karlsson's amazing free kick, Sweden secured all three points and are now third in Group F.
Andersson was all happy heading over to the corner flag after the game to have a post-match discussion with Swedish football legends. Despite the great performance, Bojan Djordjic was upset at the Swedish coach.
Djordjic asked, in quite a condescending way, Andersson why he only gave Karlsson eight minutes in these two games.
Janne Andersson got annoyed by this question and answered back, in an aggressive way: "we could discuss the squad selection and choice of players . We could spend the whole fucking night on that, excuse me".
Safe to say, things unravelled from there.

Andersson later said in the press conference:
I can apologise if I said something bad. If I said something bad, I can take responsibility for it. Don't mix that up, than I get pissed off.
It's not the best ending to an international break for the Swedish national team.
