Patrik "Bjärred" Jonas Andersson (born August 18 1971 in Borgebymarker) is a former Swedishmarker footballer. Both his father, Roy Andersson, as well as his younger brother, Daniel Andersson, have played professional football.

As of early 2005, Andersson has a total of 96 caps for the Swedish national team, scoring 3 goals. He won a bronze medal in the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Andersson also played in the team which reached the semi-finals in the 1992 European Championship, Euro 2000, 2002 FIFA World Cup and was a member of the Swedish squad that competed at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelonamarker. In Euro 2000, he did receive a red card for a hard foul on Bart Goor.

Starting his career in the local club, Bjärreds IF, from which he also got his nicknamemarker, he moved on to Malmö FF, a team playing in the top national league. In 1992 he went professional as he moved to Blackburn Roversmarker, where he stayed until 1993, and his next step was to go to Germanymarker and play for Borussia Mönchengladbach. There he won the German Cup with the team in 1995, but left the team as its performance deteriorated, in 1999. The famous Bayern Munich became his next club. His time with Bayern resulted in two Bundesliga championships (in the 2000-01 championship season he scored the final and decisive goal against Hamburg in the last minute - his only goal for the club) as well as a German Cup and victory in the Champions League, despite missing his penalty in the final shootout.
