It had been a fractured spell for the former forward at the club where he first made his name. The Swede has now had two pretty poor spells at the Allsvenskan strugglers and his future options don’t look great.
Helsingborgs departure should rule out Celtic return for Larsson
The King of Kings is undoubtedly the most revered Celtic player of the 21st century. His contribution in the Hoops is almost unquantifiable. However, that doesn’t mean that he’s going to have any sort of positive career in management.
The 47-year-old has been managed since 2010 now and he’s yet to make a proper leap to a decent club in a big league. There has always been chat that he’ll manage Celtic one day but we’re yet to see any evidence that he’d be a good appointment.
The Scottish Sun linked Larsson with a sensational return to Celtic Park in early June. They reported that he was being lined up by Neil Lennon to join his new-look backroom team.
With the news of him departing Helsingborgs again it will be interesting to see if the Celtic talk ramps up again. Given his managerial CV, a coaching role is about all the legend could hope for at a club our size.
