Video: Henrik Larsson’s son scores first top-flight goal

Tom Victor

Helsingborgs striker Jordan Larsson has a cool head, a great touch and a finish to boot, a little like his old man.

The son of former Celtic, Barcelona and Manchester United striker Henrik has followed the same career path, joining Helsingborgs from local side Hogaborgs, and has now scored his first goal in the Swedish top flight.

Jordan, named after basketball legend Michael Jordan, opened the scoring in a 3-0 league victory over Atvidabergs.

The 17-year-old might be managed by his legendary father, but ability like this shows he’s in the team on merit.

He’s not the only member of a famous footballing dynasty to get off the mark recently, with Gheorghe Hagi’s son Ianis opening his account in Romania.

The celebrations didn’t go on too long though, as Jordan had a quick kit-change to cheer on one of his dad’s former clubs in the Champions League final.
