King Henke Could Return

King Henke Could Return

We all remember Larsson, don't we? The announcement of his arrival surprised a lot of people back in last December but he turned out to be a great asset during his three months on loan.

The 36-year-old Swede scored only three goals (against Villa, Watford and Lille) but his contribution to our build-up play and his linking with Rooney was excellent and provided cover for the injured Saha and the slowly recovering Smith.

Fergie wanted to convince the Swede to extend his loan which initially lasted three months but he maintained that he had to return to Helsingborgs. Now his deal expired with his hometown club, leaving him free to negotiate a move to United in January.

It remains to be seen whether he's willing to take up the challenge again. His team has advanced from the group stage of the UEFA Cup, with Larsson being their top scorer with 6 goals. He is at ease there and it's not certain that he would be prepared to expose himself to the highest level again.

I have little doubt that he would useful again: his physical condition, as far as I'm aware, has not deteriorated since last season and the brain is sharp as ever. Reports suggest that he is keen on a last hurrah before he draws the curtains on his career - if it is indeed true then it would be another smart coup by Fergie to convince him to come here and aid us in our quest for silverware.

Oh, bring him back, is intelligence could still be invaluable and his presence could play a key part in keeping the other strikers fit for the last parts of the season.

He has been awesome in the UEFA-cup. As good as last year or maybe better. But he has played continously for over a year and claims he want a vacation. On the other hand has his contract with Helsingborg expired...and he is just about to decide on continuing or go back and play for his first club Högaborg, something he has always claimed will be the end of his career. But if you get him....it will be even harder to catch you.

Top, top player in his prime but he's surely past it now.

He might be past it but would walk over Crouch, Kuyt and Voronin any time he wanted

Player of the past, but certainly still good enough for the UEFA Cup.
