Alhaji Gero has explained to SCORENigeria why he quit Ostersund FK to join another Swedish club Helsingborgs on a contract for two and a half years.
He said Helsingborgs manager Henrik Larsson was a legend in his playing days and he believes he will make him a better striker as he too was a striker in his hey days.
“I decided to not extend my contract with Östersund FK because I wish to try something else,” he told SCORENigeria
“Helsingborgs made me a good offer, they are one of the best clubs in Sweden and with a lot of history.
“And also I signed with them because of the manager, Henrik Larsson.
“He is a legend and also he was a striker when he played, so I believe I will learn a lot from him.”
The former Nigeria ‘B’ international played in the UEFA Europa with Ostersund and also had a short-lived stint in Iran.
