Henrik Larsson, 41, Agrees To Come Out Of Retirement To Play One Last Game For Boyhood Club Hogaborgs BK

“I heard of dreadlocks Henke, but shitlocks?!!”

Four years after knocking his playing career on the head, Henrik Larsson has agreed to his boyhood club a favour and come out of retirement for one night only to help them through an injury crisis.

Larsson, who started with Hogaborgs BK as a 6-year-old in 1977 and played for them right through until 1992 when he joined Helsingborgs, has agreed to start on the bench for the club’s fourth-tier league gameĀ against Tenhults on Wednesday evening.

According to Swedish paper Aftonbladet, the 41-year-old former Sweden, Celtic, Barcelona and Manchester United striker is repaying a promise he broke back in 2009 when he vowed to return to Hogaborgs for one final year though unfortunately a series of troublesome injuries forced Larsson into full retirement before he could sign on the dotted line again with his first club.

As an added little bonus, Larsson’s 15-year-old son Jordan currently plays for Hogaborgs and is likely to start against Tenhults while his father watches on from the bench.

It’s not often “like-for-like” substitutions are made on a genetic level!
