Henrik Larsson Names One Celt In Crazy 5 A Side Team Made Up Of Best Career Teammates

Henrik Larsson was recently interviewed on The Lockdown Tactics podcast, in an episode which featured himself, Kris Boyd and Robert Snodgrass.

The episode touched on his personal life – the father, the brother and the husband. However, one of the closing questions was when Snodgrass asked Larsson to name a five a side team based on the players that he has played with throughout his career. One Celt made the cut as Larsson picked an astonishing side.

The King of Kings picked his goalkeeper as Victor Valdes.

Then he said he’s going to just pick players out of position because the list featured below simply had to be included.

Here’s how Henrik’s team shaped up:



Xavi Messi


Henrik did also mention Ronaldinho, however, only five can play and much to Boyd’s surprise, Sutton made the cut.

Alongisde Ronaldinho, in terms of players who missed out, are the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Iniesta, Puyol, Ljungberg, Moravcik, Eto’o, Rooney, Giggs, Scholes, Van Der Sar, and many others. The Swede has certainly played with some sensational footballers over the years and would surely be deserving of a place in the team himself.
