Money quits over Stockholm system

Story Tools

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (Reuters) -- Richard Money has resigned as coach of Swedish first division club AIK Stockholm, citing different views on tactics as a reason for his departure.

"AIK has begun the development of a new playing system which is based on a 4-3-3 philosophy..." the former Liverpool player said on the AlK website.

"I have to be honest to myself and to everyone else -- my football philosophy is based on 4-4-2 and I feel the players are beginning to sense it."

The 48-year-old, who played for Liverpool between 1979 and 1981, took over as AIK coach from Dusan Uhrin in January 2003.

AIK played 37 competitive matches under Money and won 16, drew 8 and lost 13. They are seventh in the standings after a win and a defeat in their first two games of this season.

Assistant coaches Patrick Englund and Nebojsa Novakovic will jointly take over from Money until the league break during the European championships in Portugal starting on June 12.
