Larsson set for Assistant manager role with former club

HENRIK LARSSON is set to return to football with the assistant managers role at Feyenoord. Reports have surfaced claiming that the Swedish legend will return to the Dutch side alongside proposed new manager Dirk Kuyt.

Dutch Football site Football Oranje is reporting that the 48-year-old will become the assistant following Jaap Stam’s departure.

Larsson left Feyenoord for Celtic in 1997 following a contract dispute and Larsson became a legend in the East End of Glasgow scoring 242 goals for Celtic over seven seasons in the Hoops.

The Celtic Star had suggested Larsson could be a candidate to succeed Damien Duff following the Irishman’s departure.

The ‘King of Kings’ admitted that he would consider a role in Scotland as he looks to find a return to the game since leaving Helsingborgs last August. Following Duff’s departure as first team coach, there was an opening in the Celtic dugout but it appears that the hopes for this have ended.

Celtic still have the a vacancy in the dugout but it would appear that Larsson will not be filling it.
