He’s not the first and he most certainly won’t be the last. Swedish striker Henrik Larsson has confessed that he made a huge mistake by turning down an offer from Sir Alex Ferguson to extend his stay at Old Trafford back in 2007. Larsson was signed on a short term contract earlier that year in what was the major shock in the January transfer window. He made an instant impact during the three month stay at United going on to claim a title medal for his part in their Premier League success.
