‘Massive gamble’, ‘Miracle required’ – Plenty of Southend fans react to fresh managerial update

Southend United look set to appoint a new manager, with former Celtic and Manchester United striker Henrik Larsson set to take the reins at Roots Hall.

The Essex club have endured a dismal start to the Sky Bet League One campaign, losing 10 of their opening 12 league matches, and sitting five points adrift of safety already.

Kevin Bond was relieved of his duties by the club at the start of September, and the Shrimpers are still on the lookout for a new boss after their 4-1 home defeat to AFC Wimbledon at the weekend.

But the Southend Echo claims that Southend are closing in on a managerial appointment, with Henrik Larsson set to take over from Bond at Roots Hall.

Larsson has watched Southend on two different occasions this season, and it is believed that former Liverpool winger Dirk Kuyt will also be joining the club as his number two.

Larsson has no experience of managing in England as of yet, but has spent time with Landskrona BoIS, Falkenberg and Helsingborg in Sweden before.

Here, we take a look at Southend fans’ reactions to this fresh piece of managerial news…
