In the 1972 Coupe de France Final, he delivered two assists. He was known for his dribbling ability and nicknamed le Garrincha suédois (The Swedish Garrincha) in Marseille. But the arrival at the club of Salif Keita pushed him away from the pitch because French teams were compelled at the time to use only two foreign players, and Marseille's coaches used mainly Keita and Skoblar. However, he remains today one of the best players to wear the l'OM jersey. (en)
