Fergie: Larsson will be a real boost

The United boss said: “It’s a real boost. Henrik has great pedigree and character. He also has goalscoring ability. We’re very pleased. He can play anywhere along the front line, he’s an intelligent player and he can score goals.”

He added: “It’s a good bit of business for us. He can change games and showed that against Arsenal in the Champions League final. I think he won that game for Barcelona and change things around for them.”
