Celtic legend Henrik Larsson was in attendance as Southend United earned a massive three points away to MK Dons yesterday.

Former Hoops star Larsson is understood to be The Shrimpers' key target for the manager's job after Keith Poole left.

We told how the ex-striker departed Helsinborgs over alleged abuse suffered during a poor season for the Swedish side.

But he's not had to wait too long to come into consideration for a new role.

League One outfit Southend have reportedly identified Larsson as the main priority on their shortlist for the main job at Roots Hall.

And the Champions League winner appears to be keen to head to English football again - and watched his potential new side earn a win.

It was their first victory of the season.
