Larsson follows father

STRIKER Jordan Larsson, son of Celtic legend and former Sweden international Henrik, is following his father's footsteps by moving from lower-league Hogaborg to Helsingborg, just as his dad did 22 years ago, the club announced.

Henrik Larsson made his name at Helsingborg before embarking on a professional career during which he won a host of trophies at Celtic and Barcelona before returning at the end of his career and now his 17-year-old son is taking a similar path.

"Helsingborg is a fantastic club, hopefully I can developinto a very good player here, and I believe I can," Jordan Larsson said.

But despite the obvious similarities to his father, his new club is keen to give the teenager the space to develop at his own pace.

"They are two different people and there is no need to put an unnecessary burden on Jordan's shoulders by comparing him to his father," Helsingborg sporting director Jesper Jansson said.
