Former Swedish defender. Joachim was good centre back who could play also as side back, had decent strength and good speed, strong in aerial battles and solid anticipating. Björklund played in the youth at Osters IF. In 1990 he joined SK Brann in the Norwegian Tippeligaen. He quickly won a starting place here and made his debut in 1991 in the Swedish national team. A year later he was part of the Swedish squad at the Olympic Games in Barcelona and the European Championships on home soil, when he was in all four games on the court. After three years in Norway in 1993 after he went back to Sweden IFK Gothenburg. With the club he won from 1993 to 1995 three-time Swedish champion. At the World Championships in 1994 he was part of the permanent staff and was in all the Swedish matches. He reached the national semi-final against Brazil. After a 0-1 defeat they missed the final, but could look forward to a significant 4-0 victory against lackluster Bulgarians about the bronze medal. In the Champions League season 94/95 Björklund could surprise you with his team, as FC Barcelona and Manchester United were beaten and the group managed to win. Although the club then failed to Bayern Munich on away goals, players such as Bjorklund had aroused interest outside Sweden. In the summer of 1995, Björklund moved to Italian club Vicenza Calcio, who played in Serie B. At the end of the season in which he played 33 games this season, managed third place and thus the rise in the Serie A. But left the club after Björklund only one season and went to Scotland for the Glasgow Rangers. In his first season with the club he won the Scottish Cup. After a second place in the following year and winning the Scottish League Cup, he finished his commitment in Scotland. Bjorklund was hired in 1998 at Valencia in the Primera División. After 19 years without a title was in the 1998/99, won the Copa del Rey. Atletico Madrid was defeated in the finals with 3-0 clear. 2000 and 2001 the club was in each case in the final of the UEFA Champions League, Bjorklund was not on the lawn. After the Swedish national team had failed to qualify for Euro 96 and World Cup 98, succeeded by participating in the EURO 2000, the return to a major tournament. As in the past tournaments Björklund was again to the root of the team. However, Sweden dropped out after only one point win against Turkey prematurely as a group last. His last 78 international matches played on 11 Björklund October 2000 against Slovakia. Björklund 2001 left Spain and returned to Italy. One season he was in Venice at SSC contract. However, the commitment is not marked by success, the newly Ascended Club is just table last. Björklund 2002 signed with Sunderland AFC. However, he missed again with only 19 points against relegation in the Premier League. This is the worst result of the club's history. Managed in the following season in the First Division, third place and the club reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup, where could the Millwall FC at Old Trafford prevail 1-0. Coach Mick McCarthy, he sorted out at the end of the season and Björklund moved to Wolverhampton Wanderers, who were relegated to the Football League Championship. Here he came just at the beginning of the season to a few missions and declared his retirement after the season. After ending his active career, he was hired by his former club Valencia as a talent scout for the Scandinavian region.
