Larsson to return to Sweden

34 year old Barca striker Henrik Larsson is to leave FCB at the end of the season, returning to Sweden. It's not all that surprising considering he's not seen much action in the past season and a half. Knee injury notwithstanding, the form of Samuel Eto'o and the emergence of Leo Messi has meant that Copa Del Rey games and late substitute appearences aside, Larsson has been watching most Barca games from the bench. His most likely destination is Helsingborg.

Henrik is an awesome player and had he arrived at Barca earlier in his career, when the competition upfront was Kluivert, Dani and Saviola he would have walked into the first team. As is, considering his age, I'd rather Maxi Lopez be given a chance.
