Special Tribute to Henrik Larsson

On 1 Dec 2006, way before the transfer window is open, Sir Alex Ferguson did the most unthinkable. He had secured a 3 months loan for Henrik Larsson from Helsingborg. No one expect that as papers are having a field day which players Manchester United have targetted. Owen Hargreaves and Fernando Torres are the most notable names.

7 Jan 2007, Henrik Larsson have arrived at the Theatre of Dreams with a goal debut against Aston Villa in the FA Cup 3rd round. Man Utd won 2-1 and progress to the 4th round.

31 Jan 2007, Watford get a taste of what Henrik Larsson did to them. He scored one and assisted Wayne Rooney with a goal. Final scoreline was 4-0.

After that, the media were trying to get Man U to extend the loan to the end of the season or even signing Larsson permenantly. Even the Helsingborg chairman have no choice but also agreed that Larsson should extend the loan. But the star did not respond as he rather let his legs do the talking.

7 Mar 2007, Lille got dumped out of the Champions League by a Larsson header.

In the end, Larsson did not extend the loan as he citied family as the main reason. Though it was a short time, but he have done enough damage to help Man Utd progress to the quarter final of the Champions League and FA cup, and 9 points clear of the Premiership table. During these 3 months, Larsson have done enough to warm the hearts of Man Utd faithfuls. He have played in the EPL 7 times, FA Cup 4 times and Champions League 2 times. He also scored in every competition.

After the last match against Boro in the FA cup quarter final, he wish Man Utd all the best and aim for the Treble.

We also wish Henrik all the best. Thanks for the contribution in these 3 months. Thanks for the warm wishes.
