LIKE FATHER LIKE SON?HENRIK LARSSON RETURNS TO FOOTBALL AS HIS SON SCORES IN THE SAME TEAM AS HIS DAD

Well done, son: Jordan (right) congratulated by Henrik after scoring for Hogaborg

Sweden football legend Henrik Larsson made his comeback at the age of 41 for Swedish fourth division side Hogaborg but it was his son Jordan who stole the show as the 15-year-old got on the scoresheet.

The veteran who played for Celtic, Manchester United and Barcelona dusted off his boots after Hogaborg, the team for whom he is currently assistance manager, were struggling with injuries ahead of their clash with relegation rivals Tenhult.

And his return did the trick as Larsson, playing for the first time in four years, and his son helped Hogaborg win 4-2.
Younger days: Jordan was brought up in Scotland and often went to Celtic Park with his dad and even joined in the celebrations when Celtic won the SPL title in 2004

Henrik told Swedish newspaper Expressen: 'We didn't combine a whole lot but obviously I'm proud. It is of course a rare luxury to get to play with your son.'

Jordan, a promising attacking midfielder who has been linked with a number of major European clubs, said: 'It was great fun - maybe next time I can make an assist for him.'
