Helsingborg investigate Larsson attack

Liam Hanna by Liam Hanna @LiamPHanna - 0 481

Helsingborg are investigating an attack on Jordan Larsson after the son of the club's manager, and ex-Celtic and Barcelona player Henrik Larsson, was confronted by angry fans following relegation.

The five-time champions of Sweden were relegated on Sunday following a 2-1 defeat in a relegation play-off with Halmstad and ugly scenes were to follow after the match.

Helsingborgs, managed by former Celtic and Barcelona star Henrik Larsson, saw striker and manager's son Jordan Larsson attacked by fans after the match.

Angry fans entered the field after the game and ripped the shirt off the young striker, despite him scoring the team's only goal of the game.

The club will now look into the incident which was deemed "unacceptable" by the club's president Mats-Ola Schulze.

In an official statement, Schulze said: "The events that took place after today's game were unacceptable. 

"Helsingborgs IF strongly reject this because it is contrary to our values . We will return with a statement about this when we have created a comprehensive picture".
