Henrik Larsson resigned as Helsingborg coach in November after he and his son were involved in an angry confrontation with fans as the club lost a playoff match and were relegated from the Swedish top flight.

“I’d like to thank everyone for the time in Helsingborg. I came here as a 17-year-old and learnt an awful lot,” Jordan, who netted 18 goals and had 12 assists in 68 games for the club, said in a statement.

Henrik left his home country to join Feyenoord in 1993, spending three and a half years in the Netherlands before enjoying a glittering career with Celtic, Barcelona and Manchester United.
