Larsson to leave with no regrets

18 May 2006 14:47

BARCELONA, May 18 (SW) - Henrik Larsson, who is set to leave the Camp Nou this summer, does so with no regrets, saying he is looking forward to joining his hometown club in Sweden.

The former Celtic striker came on as a substitute in last night’s UEFA Champions League final at the Stade de France in Paris, setting up both goals for the Spanish and European champions.

And although Barcelona have offered the Swede a new contract, Larsson has opted instead to sign an 18-month contract with Helsingborg, his hometown club.

"I'm almost 35 years old," Larsson BBC Sport.

"I've got kids and they need to understand how we live in Sweden.

"My house there is finished and we need to go back there."

Larsson went on to add that the lack of regular football at the Camp Nou had factored in his decision to leave Barcelona.

"I want to play football. I feel I haven't played as much as I would love to because of the great players we have at Barcelona," he said.

"I maybe have one or two more years playing at a decent level and I want to do that playing for 90 minutes."

After 9 matches, Helsingborg are 9th out of 14 in the Allsvenskan, the Swedish first division.
