Henrik Larsson subbed himself on for Helsingborgs, the club he now manages, in a pre-season friendly last night and, of course, he scored.

While most football managers in their early forties are happy to bellow instructions from the sidelines, Henrik Larsson is no ordinary manager.

The former Celtic and Barcelona star is now managing Helsingborgs in his native Sweden and they were playing Malmo last night in a friendly.

With a large number of his players away on international duty, and with his team leading 6-1, Larsson decided to give his strikers a break and brought himself on.

And, if you were in any doubt about whether class is permanent, Larsson duly delivered a goal.

What a man.
