Celtic hero Henrik Larsson could be on his way back to the UK as manager.

The Swede is out of work since leaving his role at Helsingborgs.

He claimed he departed over the number of insults he received as boss.

Now it has emerged that Southend United are considering him as a replacement for Kevin Bond.

The latter resigned from the League One outfit after a dismal start to the new season.

According to the Daily Mail, ex-Barcelona star Larsson is high up on a list of names being looked at for the job.

Southend lost 4-3 to Shrewsbury last night with ex-Hibs ace Jason Cummings on the score sheet.
