'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Larsson's Loving Every Minute

Henrik Larsson admitted that playing for United is something close to a dream and he's enjoying every minute of working with Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.

Larsson's doubters are silent recently. The veteran ex-Celtic striker proves to be a useful member of the United squad and it's no surprise a lot of people actually regret he plans to go back to Sweden in March - but before he would do that, he offered generous praise to his teammates and his current club.

'At my age, I didn't think I would get the chance to play with players of this calibre again,' he said.

'I moved back home to Sweden last summer and more or less decided I did not want to go anywhere else, so when United came in for me it was a bit surprising and very flattering.

'I have been watching these guys on TV for quite a while and I just could not say no.

'Now I am here, I am enjoying it immensely. There is a great team spirit, which is so important, and I am loving every minute I get on the pitch.'

He praised his young colleagues, admitting that Ronaldo and Rooney are great players.

'I have always said it is easy to play with great players - and they are great players,' he said.

'It's frightening to think they can only get better, because both are already up at such a high level.

'It is up to them how good they want to be - there is no limit.'

Larsson really is playing well. I expected him to crumble at United but he's proved me wrong.

He's quality. Look at his movement up front there are not many better than him at finding space even if he loses a bit of pace.
