Helsingborgs boss Baxter delighted to see Larson turn down Man Utd

Baxter said: “Henrik realises football cannot go on for ever. That one day it will be over, even for someone as successful and as fit as him. It would have been easy for him to say sod it, I’m staying’ and not come back but Henrik has always kept football in perspective.

“He loves football but has never been consumed by it. He has got the right balance between football and family.

“His kids are now back in their homeland and at a school age.

“You have got to admire him for doing this.”
