Helsingborgs manager Stuart Baxter believes Henrik Larsson will find it easy to adapt to England following his move to United on 1 January.

The Swedish striker is arriving for a three-month loan and some people expressed their concerns about whether he would be able to get up to the speed in the Premiership. His coach thinks that hard work is what Larsson requires to be a success at Old Trafford.

‘We only finished our season 10 days ago so Henrik is still in good shape,’ Baxter told the Press Association.

‘If he works reasonably hard over Christmas – which I presume he will do – and gets in some good work with United that will bring him back up to speed.’

‘Of course Henrik has got to adjust to the pace of the game, the same as everyone else,’ he added. ‘But for the job United want him to do, his fitness will not be a problem.’
