Swedish great Henrik Larsson in England for Southend talks

Former Manchester United and Barcelona striker Henrik Larsson watched Southend United at MK Dons yesterday.

The former Sweden international was originally ruled out of the running but it is now understood the 47-year-old will be interviewed for the vacant managerial role at Roots Hall, says Echo-news.co.uk.

Larsson, who won 106 caps for his country, has previously managed Landskronan BoIS, Falkenberg and Helsingborg and is now in the running to replace Kevin Bond.

However, Larsson's appearance at Stadium MK does not definitely mean he will be getting the job as others are also being considered including Gary Waddock who is currently Blues' caretaker manager.
