Henrik Larsson Calls Helsingborgs Fan Attack on His Son Jordan “Bulls**t”

Henrik Larsson Calls Helsingborgs Fan Attack on His Son Jordan “Bulls**t”

Henrik Larsson has given his take on the remarkable scenes following Helsingborgs’ relegation from the Swedish top-flight on Sunday evening, with his son Jordan attacked by fans.

As we told you last night, the 2-1 home defeat to Halmstad saw Henrik’s Helsingborg side suffer their first relegation in 23 years and supporters soon rushed onto the pitch to remove his son Jordan’s jersey in a message insinuating he wasn’t fit to wear the shirt.

It’s unclear where the Larsson’s go from here, but the Celtic legend has given his take on the extraordinary events, calling the scenes “bulls**t” and warning anyone out to get him that he has “many dogs at home”.

Speaking via The Guardian, Henrik said: “I’ll have to look one extra time over my shoulder. I guess I can’t go out alone so much in the future.

“I have plenty of dogs at home, it’s no problem.

“Eight or nine minutes before the scuffle, they rejoiced at his goal.

“It is important for the club that we identify those who were on the pitch.

“They will not come here again. It’s bulls**t.

“I do not understand why they should go the best player in the season and I will send him away on vacation.”

“If they had turned on me, I’d have been beaten, but some of them would also have been beaten.

“I thought the fans would stay there in the corner, we would not get into some of the plan.

“It was for the club’s sake that I was there and I was not going to run.”

Jordan Larsson, still only 19, is regarded as probably Helsingborgs’ best player, and one of the most promising football prospects in Sweden after scoring several outstanding goals in the past two seasons.

It remains to be seen whether he, or his father, will still be at the club to lead the fight for promotion next season.

What do you make of the incident, and Larsson’s comments?
