Henrik Larsson will be in excellent shape when he joins Manchester United on loan on January 1, according to Helsingborgs coach Stuart Baxter.

The former Sweden striker, 35, has trained with Sir Alex Ferguson´s squad for the first time ahead of his short-term move from the Swedish club. He will stay in Manchester for the rest of the week before rejoining his family to celebrate Christmas.

Baxter told PA Sport: "We only finished our season 10 days ago so Henrik is still in good shape. 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."
