Barcelona are clearly pretty excited about having Henrik Larsson back at the club – judging by a social media post.
The Catalan giants took to Twitter, in front of 33 million followers, to share a brilliant two minute video featuring Larsson’s finest moments of his Nou Camp playing career.

The video features Larsson’s final comment in a Barca shirt (translated): “Long live Barca, long live Catalonia” as well as his game-changing impact in the 2006 Champions League final.
That game in Paris was the final of Larsson’s time at Barca, in a two year period that saw him net 13 league goals.

The video also included an awkward moment, from a Celtic point of view, as Larsson netted against us in a European game in 2004.
However, the post just goes to show how big a figure the Swede is, even at a club the size of Barca.
He, and Ronald Koeman, are two legends of the Nou Camp club and the pair will be hopeful of improving their fortunes after the sickening 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich last week.
Earlier, we told you how some Celtic fans were keen to see the King of Kings do his old club a favour and loan us some talent during the summer window.
Sadly, helping his former employers is likely to be pretty low down the 48-year-old’s list as he prepares to get things right alongside Koeman.
