Henrik Larsson has turned dwn the chance to extend his loand period at Manchester United and is set to leave the club next month.

The 35-year-old Swedish striker, who began his loan spell with the Premiership leaders in January, will return to Helsingborg on 12 March.

“I’m not saying that I’m not flattered or grateful to get the opportunity to extend my stay but there are other things I need to think about,” he said.

“The Swedish season starts at the end of March. I need to get back for it.”

The former Celtic and Barcelona forward also revealed he was not enjoying having to commute from Sweden.

“I am going back and forward and it’s not an ideal situation,” he said.

But he added: “This is a great adventure for me.

“I arrived in January and I’m going home in March to play in Sweden. It suits me perfectly.”

Larsson has scored two goals in eight games for United.
