Karl Svensson (Swedish pronunciation: [kaːɭ ˈsvɛnsɔn]; born 21 March 1984 in Jönköping) is a Swedish football defender, currently playing for IFK Göteborg.

Club career

He played for a local club called Egnahems BK before he went on to Jönköpings Södra IF. In 2003 Svensson joined IFK Göteborg. He had shown much talent in leading a defense, despite his young age, and also had the role of team captain. In 2005, Svensson almost led the club to their first Allsvenskan title since 1996, but lost out to Djurgårdens IF in the penultimate game.

Svensson signed with Rangers on 26 May 2006 for an undisclosed fee on a three–year contract. The fee was reported to have been in the region of £600,000. He made his Rangers debut in the first match of the Scottish Premier League that season, a 2–1 victory away to Motherwell.

On 27 June 2007, Svensson signed a three–year contract with French side Caen, newly promoted to Ligue 1.[1]

On 19 January 2009, Svensson signed a four–year contract with his former club IFK Göteborg. He told the Swedish media: "I'm glad to be back at home".

Both the manager Håkan Mild and coach Stefan Rehn says Svensson could be the new captain of IFK Göteborg after the retired Niclas Alexandersson.
