Managerial career

Early career in Scandinavia

Backe began his managerial career with Djurgårdens IF in his native Sweden from 1982-84, compiling a record of 38 wins, 20 draws and only 12 losses while with the club, which included a first place finish in the 1982 Division 2 Norra. Following his early success with Djurgårdens IF he went on to manage Molde FK, Hammarby IF, Östers, AIK and numerous other top Scandinavian clubs. In 1989 he led Östers to a first place finish in Division 1 Södra in which the club ended the season unbeaten in all 26 league matches and gained promotion to the Swedish Allsvenskan.

He enjoyed his greatest success in Denmark, having won four Danish titles with FC Copenhagen and Aalborg BK.

Panathinaikos

Backe was the manager of Panathinaikos in Athens until 14 September 2006, but was fired after just three games due to the team's poor performance in this time. Although Panathinaikos won two of three league matches, a 2-0 home loss to Ionikos and a 1-1 draw at home in a UEFA Cup tie against Ukrainian side Metalurgh Zaporizhzhya led to his dismissal.

Assistant to Sven-Göran Eriksson

In July 2007, he was appointed as assistant manager at Manchester City in the English Premier League, working alongside fellow countryman Sven-Göran Eriksson. Prior to being appointed as Manchester City assistant manager, he worked as a senior advisor for Östers IF as well as a football analyst and commentator for Swedish TV4. Backe briefly resigned his position at City after a family crisis in Sweden forced him to take compassionate leave shortly into his time at the club, but after a month was able to return at his former post. Along with Eriksson, Backe and first-team coach Tord Grip parted company with the Eastlands club, joining Mexico with the two Swedes.

Notts County

On 27 October 2009, Backe was appointed as manager of Notts County, the Swedish coach signed a three year contract the club.[2][3] He resigned just seven weeks later, on 15 December after a dispute about wages not being paid was announced. During his time with Notts County Backe compiled 4 wins (including two FA Cup wins), 3 draws, and 2 losses.

New York Red Bulls

On January 7, 2010, Backe was named manager of Red Bull New York.[4]
