Already in Catalonia for a week of training with Helsingborg, the team he has been coaching for two years, Henrik Larsson made a visit to FC Barcelona at the Ciutat Esportiva on Monday. The former Sweden international and ex-Barça striker took the opportunity to sit down with Barça TV to talk about the team he used to play for.

"I watch them whenever I can," he said, fondly recalling his playing days in the Catalan capital. Besides some words of praise for the team's current state of form and for head coach Luis Enrique, Larsson made an observation that doesn't seem all that outlandish: "Some times it seems like you're watching a FIFA game being played on a PlayStation."

Being one of the privileged few who won a UEFA Champions League crown with FC Barcelona, Larsson is in a very good position to evaluate the team's chances this year. He waxed philosophical on a host of topics, from Andrés Iniesta to Leo Messi and from Luis Suárez to the role of luck.

Take a look at the video for the highlights of what Larsson had to say.
