It's clear the Frolunda coach is not a fan of his.
Other clubs in SEL and Allsvenskan are showing interest in him.

Frölunda usually wait too long before their prospects get chance. Took way too long time before Lars Eller and Philip Larsen got their fair chances in SEL, not to mention Simon Hjalmarsson... At least Mikkel Boedker was smart enough to leave Frölunda early. Even Erik Karlsson didn't play the entire season in SEL (went on on loan to Allsvenskan) the year AFTER he was drafted. Frölunda have a good junior organization, but they rarely give the kids a fair chance to play in SEL. Someone like Karlsson didn't get many minutes ice time because they choose expensive, established players - mainly imports such as Joe DiPenta - instead.

Frölunda's SEL staff is a complete joke IMO, however rarely talk about it as I get attacked by biased Frölunda fans when I do.

Collberg would be wise to force a move elsewhere.
