HENRIK LARSSON and his son Jordan were attacked by angry fans after Helsingborgs were relegated from the Swedish top-flight yesterday.

Jordan looked to have fired his team to safety when he scored in the 83rd minute to make it 2-1 on aggregate for the home side.
But a Marcus Mathisen double in the last three minutes gave the second-tier outfit a 3-2 aggregate victory and saw Helsingborgs drop out of the Allsvenskan.

Larsson and his son went to commiserate with the home crowd when a number of fans threw chairs and flags at them. A corner flag narrowly missed the ex-Parkhead favourite.

Several masked men entering the field to rip at Jordan’s shirt.

One of the pitch invaders appeared to strike the 19-year-old, provoking an angry response from father and son before stewards could intervene.

“I understand their frustration,” said Larsson. “That’s why I went over there. It was not the smartest thing for me to do.776285-larsson

“I live and work here in town. I will look over my shoulder a little more and make sure not to walk alone in town.

“If they (hooligans) come, they come. We have many dogs at home.”

The seven-time Swedish champions were relegated for the first time in 23 years, with Larsson having been in charge of the club he used to play for since the start of last season.

The 45-year-old Hoops great has reportedly said he intends to stay on as manager.
