Henrik Larsson was only at FC Barcelona for two years, but that was long enough for him to fall in love with the club and the city. He was at the game between Barça and Manchester United on Wednesday night in Gothenburg and spoke to the Barça TV cameras about how his former club has been performing in recent years. “It is a pleasure to watch Barça” he said. “I think they can challenge for everything again. They have such essential players like Xavi, Iniesta, Messi ... Right now they are the best team in the world”.

“Messi will win the Ballon d’Or”

The former FCB man has no doubt who’ll win the Ballon d’Or this year. “Messi, because he’s the best” said Larsson, who knows what he’s talking about because it was while he was at Barcelona that the young Argentinian was just starting to make himself known. “I remember the first time I saw him in training and it was incredible” remembers the man who is now manager of Landskrona Bols.
