Larsson Plays Down Paper Talk

Last updated : 17 February 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

Larsson was quoted last week as claiming that he would not want to spend another season at St Andrews should Blues remain in the Championship and that he was unhappy at having to play in the right-back role in recent game's.

However, the Blues midfielder claims that the quote's may have been taken out of context.

"I don't know what has been said over here apart from probably not exactly what I said to the Swedish newspaper which happens quite often," he has told the Birmingham Mail.

"As I said before, if people want to start speculation there's not much I can do about it and I'm not going to let that effect me again like it did early on in the season.

"I suppose from the little things I've heard it sounds a bit misconstrued and it's not exactly the words I said.

"This stuff happens; it's nothing to worry about. I'm totally committed to the club and doing everything I can to get my form back to my best and help us out."

"I'm concentrating on football now and I'm doing my all for Birmingham City to try to make sure we get into the Premier League.

"There's not that long to go now so I really have to try to focus on that. I don't even know what's been said over here. But what I said was that I want to be in the Premier League next year like everyone else, like all my team-mates.

"The best way to make sure of that is to make sure Birmingham get promoted. That's my goal, there's nothing else on my mind."
