Watch: Fans invade pitch and take striker’s jersey after club’s relegation

Helsingborg have dropped into the Swedish second tier and their fans were not happy

There was trouble on and off the field for Swedish outfit Helsingborg today as their relegation from the Allsvenskan was confirmed.

Helsingborg, currently managed by former Celtic legend Henrik Larsson, lost 1-2 at home to Halmstads BK (2-3 on aggregate) today. The result meant the club will play its football in Sweden’s second tier for the first time in 23 years.

At the final whistle emotions got the better of supporters as they stormed the pitch throwing items before turning their attention to star striker Jordan Larsson, son of the manager.

All the best odds on Football are on

The invaders manhandled the younger Larsson as they forcibly removed the Helsingborg jersey from his back and the striker was also allegedly punched in the episode.

This all took place despite the fact that Larsson had given his side an 82nd minute lead in both the game and the tie, however two very late Marcus Mathisen strikes for Halmstads BK sent Larsson’s club into the abyss of relegation.

Manager Henrik was so angry at what happened he can be seen on video preparing to fight the fans by himself.

As a highly-rated prospect, this incident and the club’s predicament may push Jordan out the exit door and he could end up on the radar of clubs in Scotland and England come the January transfer window.
