'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sven-Goran Eriksson Receives Mexican P45


After just nine months at the helm former Manchester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson received his Mexican equivalent of the P45 earlier today.

The Mexican Football Federationannounced the Swede's departure following a string a poor results, with many thinking the straw that broke the camels back was the poor performance and subsequent 3-1 defeatin Honduras on Wednesday.

The Mexican president Justino Compean said...

'The measures which we will take will be for the good of the Mexican team and we will take any decision we have to, no matter how difficult or hard it may be.'

Having played three World Cup qualifying games in their complicated round robin system Mexico have won one and lost two.

The standings after three games are...

USA - 7 points
Costa Rica - 6
Honduras - 4
Mexico - 3
El Salvador - 2
Trinidad & Tobago - 2

I wonder how long it will be before we see Svennis back in the Premier League.

Its not his fault that he had to manage the worst Mexican national side in decades.

Sven is yesterday's man. The modern game seems to overtake some managers and Sven looks to have been left behind. Hope he will retire gracefully so he doesn't further tarnish his reputation. Don't think he needs the money now does he?

If he keeps this golden handshake routine going he only need another 6 months (3 positions) and he can retire.

Sven was a breath of fresh air at city and his cv is trophy laiden. Worse decision he ever made was managing england. Some managers are suited to certain clubs and countries. Like ruud gullit at newcastle/ sam alladyce at newcastle/ terry venables at leeds/ and now mark hughes at city. We are 10 points worse under him at this stage of the season, compared to svens reign at eastlands.
