Last night Malmo clinched their 20th league title in their history, after they defeated IFK Norrköping 3-1.

A key factor in the Swedish side’s success was Pawel Cibicki, but following his move to Leeds United, Malmo had to find somebody to fill the void left by the 23 year old.

Kuriren have reported on the ‘hole’ left by Cibicki when he signed for Leeds United in the last window, more than halfway through the Swedish season.

The Sweden U21 international played in the majority of Malmo’s league games during their title success, and it was left to Carlos Strandberg to fill Cibicki’s boots.

Signed from Club Brugge in the summer, the 21 year old attacker took time to settle at Malmo, but the youngster stepped up last night when he scored his side’s leveller, during the win over IFK.

The goal triggered Malmo’s comeback and ultimately they secured the league title with four games to spare.

Cibicki joined Leeds United in August, and was viewed in the Swedish media as one of the outstanding young talents from the Allsvenskan.

The young forward has so far struggled to get games since his switch to Elland Road, but did make his full debut against Burnley in the EFL Cup.
