Larsson beats Ronaldo, Figo, Beckham to be named Britain’s favourite no 7

Legendary Swedish and Celtic striker Henrik Larsson has been voted Britain’s favourite number seven ever.

Larsson left Celtic in 2004 after scoring 242 goals in 313 appearances in all competitions.

He went on to spend the next two years at Barcelona winning the Champions League in 2006 before returning to the UK to join Manchester United on a two-month loan in 2007.

And despite making just seven appearances in that time – scoring one goal – he became a firm favourite with the Old Trafford fans.

Now, Larsson has another achievement to his name after being crowned British football’s all-time favourite number seven.

Sports platform OLBG analysed tens of thousands of posts from fans on social media in compiling their list – factoring in volume, interactions and text sentiment analysis.

And their research has Larsson finishing ahead of Liverpool legend Kevin Keegan and returning Man United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Former Anfield favourite Luis Suarez and Bayern Munich icon Bastian Schweinsteiger made the top five.

Heavyweights such as Luis Figo, George Best and Raul and Liverpool hero Kenny Dalglish also make the list.

Britain’s favourite ever Number 7s in full:

Henrik Larsson – Celtic

Kevin Keegan – Liverpool

Cristiano Ronaldo – Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus

Luis Suarez – Liverpool

Bastian Schweinsteiger – Germany

George Best – Manchester United

Franck Ribery – Bayern Munich, Fiorentina
