Southend United's Barry Corr: We should all stand by Bilel Mohsni
BARRY Corr has urged everyone connected with Southend United to remain right behind Bilel Mohsni.
The Frenchman was sent off after just 27 minutes on his return to action against Northampton Town at Roots Hall on Saturday.
But Corr wants Mohsni to remain with Blues and make amends for his red card.
“Bilel has come in and he's just made an honest mistake and I'd like to see him stay here now,” said the Irish striker.
“He hasn't lost his temper, he's gone in for a tackle which he's mistimed and I know some people will be saying it's the same old, same old but let's give him a chance.
“I'm happy to see him back, it was a bold decision from the manager and it might now look as though it hasn't worked.
“But what he did wasn't at all malicious and no-one can deny the talent he has so he could well have a big part to play for us during the rest of the season.”
