Larsson takes first manager's job

Henrik Larsson
Henrik Larsson won 106 caps for Sweden

Former Celtic and Barcelona striker Henrik Larsson has been appointed manager of Swedish second division side Landskrona Bois.

Larsson, 38, who also had a loan spell at Manchester United in 2007, retired as a player in October after finishing his career with Helsingborgs.

The Swede said: "I am very flattered by this offer, given that I don't have any bigger experience as a coach.

"I look forward to it and we'll see where I can take this."

Larsson was capped 106 times by Sweden and won the Champions League with Barcelona in 2006 in a 2-1 win over Arsenal in Paris.

He won two Primera Division titles with Barcelona, four Scottish Premier League crowns while at Celtic and was part of the Manchester United squad that won the Premier League in 2007.
