What Will Sven Do Now?

What Will Sven Do Now?

Now that Sven-Goran Eriksson has left Manchester City what do you think the Swede will do now.

The worlds press seem to think Sven will pack his bags and immigrate to South America, but why?

Well, it appears the ex-England manager is poised to become Mexico's next national coach.

Confirmation & Denial!

Although Eriksson's London-based agent denied earlier today that any contract had been signed or that any talks had taken place, the president of Mexico's football federation said the 60-year-old Eriksson would be named later this afternoon.

'We only seriously considered [Portugal Coach Luiz Felipe] Scolari and Eriksson,' Justino Compean told a Mexico City radio station. 'We have sorted out the details with Eriksson, and we are about to confirm him' as coach.'

Nevertheless, Eriksson's England-based agent, Athole Still, called it all 'hot air' and said no negotiations had taken place with his client.

Vital Manchester City says...

'Good luck in Mexico Sven.

Rather curious that Chelski haven't made an appointment as yet were they waiting for our situation to materialise before getting him to join up with his friend Abramovich.

Sven at Chelsea, what a good idea. Now that would bring smiles to those Stamford Bridge faces. Mind you, I think our smiles might be just a tad bigger!

Alphie, I think chelski are after a bigger fish than Sven, I think Grant was in the same mould as Sven, both very nice guys, and neither of them have the ability to motivate when the chips are down. Football has moved on Since Sven last managed a club before City and the good start was Svens downfall, not knowing what to do when the team were losing and unable or unwilling to change the system, Keegan had the same problem. The special one had that ability to change the system half way through a game. Hughes if appointed knows the pitfalls of this league and that you need to make sure that at the strat of the season you have all your cards in place and not to rely on the January window, which to some extent Sven did and found that it was extremely difficult to buy anyone with quality without paying over the odds, Chelsea did it with Le Sulk and it did not work.

Sven Goran Eriksson has been confirmed as the new coach of Mexico. So all those press rumours which I thought were crap were actually spot on!

I am surprised he's gone to Mexico and not taken the job at Chelsea.
