“Over the past week the club has been in detailed discussions with Henrik Larsson, Johan Mjallby and Tommy Johnson to be appointed manager, assistant manager and head of recruitment, respectively.
“Terms were agreed with all parties and arrangements were confirmed for Henrik, Johan and their agent to fly over this evening with a view to attending at Roots Hall, along with Tommy Johnson, to sign the contracts tomorrow.
“As a consequence of Tommy Johnson withdrawing, all discussions with Henrik Larsson and Johan Mjallby have, unfortunately, come to an end too.
“I have said previous that a week is a long time in Politics and, thanks to Tommy Johnson, 24 hours has proved a very long time in football.”
Southend United has confirmed that despite reports suggesting otherwise, Henrik Larsson will not be becoming the club’s new manager. The former Celtic forward had been heavily linked with a return to British football, but it wasn’t to be.
