Born in Gothenburg, Sam Larsson made his first start in the Swedish top flight, Allsvenskan for IFK Göteborg in March 2013, in a game against local rivals BK Häcken. By scoring once and assisting two more in a 3–0 Larsson quickly made his way to the headlines, with manager Mikael Stahre describing him as a "Swedish Brazilian", he further more earned him the nickname "Samba-Sam", due to his impressive skills on the ball and unpredictable moves.

After a successful first season Larsson made further progress during the following year, gaining much praise for his creative play and taking on a larger role in leading his team on the attack.

On 12 August 2014, IFK Göteborg announced the transfer of Larsson to Dutch side Heerenveen. On 23 August, Larsson played his first league game for his new club, a game in which he scored once to settle a 2–0 win over SBV Excelsior. After an injury-plagued first period, Larsson started to achieve much praise for his performances, including comparisons being drawn by Heerenveen manager Dwight Lodeweges between Larsson and Argentinian star Lionel Messi. Heerenveen ended the season in 7th place in the Eredevisie, with Larsson scoring eight and assisting to four goals in 25 games.

2015–16 season

In his second season with Heerenveen the club experienced a struggling period, finding themselves in the lower half of the table. Larsson's goal-scoring was less frequent than the previous spring, although he was recognised as the one player creating the most goal-scoring opportunities in the Eredivisie, while also being hailed by Heerenveen technical director Hans Vonk as the best dribbler in the league. Heerenveen finished the season in 12th while Larsson scored six goals and assisted another eight. At the end of the year, Larsson was awarded a place in the team of the season by Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.


On 21 August 2017, Larsson joined Feyenoord on a four-year contract. On 9 September, Larsson made his debut for Feyenoord in the away game against Heracles Almelo, in which he also scored Feyenoord's 4th goal.

International career

Larsson got his first call up to the senior Sweden side for 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Luxembourg and Bulgaria in October 2016, however he later withdrew from the squad through injury. In the 30th minute of his debut for Sweden away against Hungary on 15 November 2016 Larsson scored on a free kick.
