Henrik Larsson has played with so many great players over the year. He was part of a Celtic team that will be talked about for years to come, along with playing with the superstars of Barcelona and a short stint at Manchester United.
So when asked to create a team of his best XI of the player’s he has played alongside the Swede was in no doubt bout who should be in the team.
Three Celtic players make the grade!
Van Der Sar
Nilsson, Koeman, Rieper, Van Bronckhorst
Rooney, Xavi, Moravcik
Ibrahimovic, Sutton, Ronaldinho
What a line-up from the Celtic legend and what a compliment to the three Celtic players who find themselves in incredible company. Although some may feel Rab Douglas has been hard done by to be omitted from the list. We’re told he was a very close second!
For Marc Reiper, Lubo Moravcik and Chris Sutton there can be no bigger accolade bestowed upon them from the magnificent seven.
Henrik Larsson was a special talent but Celtic were never a one-man team, especially when he played under O’Neill. The former striker cannot praise his Celtic teammates high enough and we think it’s fitting that Lubo takes his name up there with some of the greats of the modern game.
