Swedish international 42-year old Henrik Larsson has been appointed manager of Falkenberg FF. Back in November the team was promoted to Allsvenskan, the highest tier of the Swedish football league, for the first time in their history. Falkenberg are underdogs tipped by many to go straight down again as the new season kicks off in April. But the former striker of Celtic, Barcelona and Manchester United is ready for the challenge: “They´ve already written us off, but I`d like to think we can do the impossible. Anyway, we have to believe in it ourselves”, says Henke, who started his coaching career in 2009. He was on loan (from Helsingborg) at Old Trafford in 2007.
