Since moving to Manchester City in the summer of 2007, 'Super- Swede Sven' has spent more than £30m on buying 10 new players.
Splendid Or Stupid?
Given the opportunity, how would you rate Sven's purchases?
Rolando BIANCHI - Italian born striker. Signed from Reggina for £8.8m.
GEOVANNI - Brazilian midfielder. A free signing from Cruzeiro.
ELANO - Brazilian attacking midfielder. Signed a four-year contract from Shakhtar Donetsk.
Gelson FERNANDES - Cape Verde midfielder. Signed from Swiss side FC Sion in July 2007.
Martin PETROV - Bulgarian attacking midfielder who is described as a talented left-winger. Petrov arrived from Athletico Madrid in a £4.7m deal.
Javier GARRIDO - Spanish defender. £1.5m signing from Real Sociedad.
Vedran CORLUKA - Defender born in Bosnia & Herzegovina. Sven-Goran Eriksson's sixth signing after he put pen to paper on a five-year deal.
Valeri BOJINOV - Bulgarian striker. Joined from Fiorentina for an undisclosed fee.
Felipe CAICEDO - Ecuadorian striker. City paid Basle £5.2m for his services.
BENJANI - Zimbabwean Striker. City paid Portsmouth £3.87m, a fee that could rise to £7.6m depending on appearances.
