Lars Larsson (16 March 1962 – 8 March 2015) was a Swedish footballer.


Lars "Lasse" Larsson started his career in native Trelleborg at IFK Trelleborg. He later moved to Malmö FF where he enjoyed the most success of his career. He went on to play for Atalanta Bergamo in 1984 but missed the majority of the 1984-85 season due to injury which also made him return to Malmö after having only played four matches in Serie A. Back in Malmö Larsson was successful again and won a Swedish championship in 1986 and became Allsvenskan top scorer in 1987. After a very brief tenure in Trelleborgs FF again due to injury Larsson ended his career and started a coaching career. He died at the age of 52 in 2015.[1]
