Jörgen Lennartsson (born 10 April 1965 in Växjö) is a Swedish football manager.


He took over Elfsborg from Magnus Haglund who had been in Elfsborg for 8 years, but moved to be the trainer in Lillestrøm SK. Jörgen had been under Elfsborgs radar for a long time, not only for his achievements with the U-21, the bronze medal in UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, but mostly for his passion to football and his strong authority and leadership. He has a lot of knowledge about football and experience as a trainer after 20 years at the sideline. His first player to buy was Joackim Jörgensen from Sarpsbourg 08 in Norway, a player as he described was much alike Jari Ilola. He will play in the Europa League Q 2012/13 with Elfsborg.

Lennartsson is former manager of Stabæk, where he started January 2011. Before Stabæk, he was the manager of the Swedish U21 team after he was held in many positions in various clubs in Sweden, the majority of which were youth coach and assistant manager positions.

After the appointment of Erik Hamrén as the head coach of the Sweden national football team there was speculation about Lennartsson being appointed assistant coach.[1]

On August 2, 2010, Stabæk announced that Lennartson would take over as head coach, and replace Jan Jönsson on January 1, 2011. But only after one season in Stabaek Jörgen had to leave his post as a manager due to Stabaeks big economic problems. Before Allsvenskan season 2012 Jörgen signed a 4-year contract as a head manager for IF Elfsborg.[2]

On 30 September 2013, IF Elfsborg have sacked manager Jorgen Lennartsson. [3]
