Club career

Early career

Wilhelmsson started his career with Mjällby AIF in 1997 where he stayed for three seasons. In 2000, he played for Norwegian Stabæk before joining Anderlecht in 2003.

FC Nantes

In 2006, Wilhelmsson moved to French side Nantes. He was commonly referred to as one of the team's "unsung heroes", due to his exciting, passionate, and explosive performances.[citation needed]

AS Roma

On January 10, 2007, Wilhelmsson joined A.S. Roma on loan until the end of the 06-07 season with an option to buy for €3 million. He made his Serie A debut on January 14 against Messina.[1] Roma opted against making his transfer permanent, preferring to sign Mauro Esposito and Ludovic Giuly, and he returned to Nantes and started seeking a new club following their relegation from Ligue 1.[2]

Bolton Wanderers

Following speculation about a move to the Premier League or the Scottish Premier League, Wilhelmsson signed for Bolton Wanderers F.C. on a 12-month loan, with an option to make the deal permanent after 20 games.[3][4][5]

Deportivo La Coruña

After failing to impress Bolton manager Gary Megson, he was again loaned by Nantes, this time moving to Spain. He joined struggling Deportivo de La Coruña on the 30th January 2008. At Deportivo, he doned number 14, and played his first match against Getafe CF, coming on as a substitute. His full debut came in a match against Espanyol, in a 2-0 home win.

Established in the first eleven, Wilhelmsson scored his first Depor goal on March 1, 2008, in a 2-1 home win against Sevilla FC.

International career

Wilhelmsson represented Sweden at Euro 2004 and the 2006 FIFA World Cup, where he featured in every one of Sweden's four games, either from the start or as a substitute. Manager Lars Lagerbäck said about him that "his game is suited to the big stage."[citation needed] Leading Swedish midfielder Niclas Alexandersson also stated that, Wilhelmsson was "easily the fastest member of the squad."[citation needed]

In September 2006, he was one of three players from the Swedish national team sent home, because they broke a curfew during a night out. The other two players were Olof Mellberg and Zlatan Ibrahimović.[6]
