20 March 1945in Mönsterås) is a former football player from Sweden. He's a brother of fellow footballer Benno Magnusson.
He played for the
Sweden national football teamand for various clubs in Europe, including a short spell at Juventus FC. His most successful years were at Olympique de Marseille, where he formed a duo with striker Josip Skoblarwinning the Division 1 in 1971 and 1972 and the Coupe de Francein 1972. In the final of the 1972 Coupe de France, he delivered two assists.
He was known for his dribbling ability and nicknamed "le Garrincha suédois" (The Swedish
Garrincha) in Marseille. [ [http://perso.orange.fr/paysfouesnant.ao/joueurs.html#magnusson Joueurs de Légende :Roger Magnusson] ] . But the arrival at the club of Salif Keita pushed him away from the pitch because French teams were compelled at the time to use only two foreign players, and Marseille's coaches used mainly Keita and Skoblar. However, he remains today one of the best players to wear "l'OM" uniform.
