Sven Goran Eriksson is the new Leicester manager, apparently
Mirror Football say ex-England gaffer has set up a 2-year Foxes deal
Leicester City sacked Paulo Sousa this morning after an abject run of one win in nine games; and it appears Sven Goran Eriksson, in true Sven Goran Eriksson fashion, has already stepped into to fill the position – despite the small issue of already being contracted to another team.
According to Mirror Football, Svennis has been in contact with the Foxes for a while and has already agreed to a two year deal. However, the Man Of A Thousand Clubs only recently signed a one year, £1.2m deal with Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal, which he was due to start on MONDAY.
The Mirror report:
Eriksson has shaken hands on the Al Hilal post and is due to fly to Riyadh once they are out of the Arabian Champions League, but he can walk away
The veteran Swede is set to commit although he wants thorough talks to be sure about Leicester’s plans after falling for Notts County’s promises a year ago and eventually leaving the club where he was director of football during a bizarre spell.
Oh, that Sven! Any Leicester fans out there? What do you reckon?
