Newcastle defender Krafth helps HIF hire Mellberg as new coach

Newcastle United defender Emil Krafth is happy to have helped Helsingborgs IF hire Olof Mellberg as new coach.

The sell-on fee due from Amiens' sale of the Swede to the Toon has helped HIF hire Mellberg to replace Henrik Larsson.

Krafth told Sportbladet: "I don't know how much money HIF received.

"But it is fun that you can help a club that you have played in and that you enjoyed very much."

HIF moved Mellberg after Larsson quit last month.
