Biography

Leif Evert Larsson was born on December 10, 1921 in Göteborg and made his IFK Göteborg debut in the 1938/39 season, which was also the debut season of team mate Holger Bennhov (Bengtsson). Larsson was part of IFK Göteborg's youth program before making his debute with the first team, and is as a result of that regarded by the club as a home-grown player. At 17 years, 5 months and 2 days, on May 14, 1939, he took part his first competetive game against Tidaholms GoIF in a Division 2 Västra game that ended 1–1. He spent eight seasons with the IFK Göteborgs first team, and during his career he played in 174 first team games and scored 205 goals. Out of these 174 first team games, 95 were Allsvenskan games.

Leif Larsson is with his 95 Allsvenskan games number 94 on the list of those who have competed in most Allsvenskan games for IFK Göteborg, and his 78 goals makes him number 9 on the list of those who have scored most Allsvenskan goals for IFK Göteborg. Larsson won the Swedish championship with IFK Göteborg in 1941-42. He currently holds no less than 8 individual club records (see the Statistics tab). Larsson passed away in 1975, 53 years old.
