Former Aston Villa and Sweden star Marcus Allback is making his playing comeback.

Allback is currently Sweden assistant coach, but is also pulling on the boots again this season for local division five Saltsjöbadens IF.

"He has said that he is available and will be in the squad (on Saturday). But it's the coach who selects the team," said sporting director Christian Erenrot to Sportbladet.

"He has a natural connection to us because he lives here, and both his kids play for the club."
