Henrik Larsson Leaves Helsingborg Due To Verbal Abuse From Fans

Henrik Larsson Leaves Helsingborg Due To Verbal Abuse From Fans
By Sean Meehan Updated

Celtic legend Henrik Larsson has left his role as Helsingborg manager following verbal abuse from fans in the wake of a Swedish Cup defeat.

Larsson's side lost to third-tier side Oskarshamns AIK 1-2 which prompted Larsson's departure. The Swede only took over in June, having previously managed the club for two seasons. Larsson famously left Helsingborg for the first time in 2016 following the club's relegation at the hands of Halmstad. Larsson, alongside his son Jordan, were attacked by a group of Helsingborg fans on the pitch after the final whistle.

Larsson cited 'verbal abuse' from the fans as the reason he stepped down from his post.

Club chairman Krister Azelius in a club statement thanked Larsson for his work at the club.

It is extremely sad that it has come to this. We take a serious stance on verbal abuse and we will get to the bottom of it... The assignment Henrik was given was to keep the team in the Allsvenskan. When he took over, the team was in the relegation places. Right now we are in twelfth place. Based on where we stand now, he has completed the assignment.

Helsingborg are set to play Norrokoping on Sunday, where his son Jordan plied his trade prior to a summer move to Spartak Moscow.
