Sven Goran Eriksson tried to sign David Beckham on loan for Leicester
Oh, that Sven!
Sven Goran Eriksson, the biggest chancer in professional
football sport, has today been regaling journos with news that he recently tried to sign DAVID BECKHAM HIMSELF on loan, for Leicester.
Unbelievably, Becks actually turned the Swede down, but that hasn’t stopped Svennis going on the hunt for other big name stars:
The owners want a big signing. Of course I would take Beckham. I spoke to his agent to see if there was a small chance but he said it wasn’t possible.
*BIG REVELATION ALERT*
It’s difficult when you talk about players at that level. Most don’t really want to come to our league.
If we get to the Premier League it will be much easier to get these players. But we are trying and the owners are happy to back me.
Apparently he’s also been in the ear of Premier League forgotten men Roque Santa Cruz, who was never really ‘remembered’ in the first place, and Robbie Keane.
Incidentally, as is typical with Sven, while he’s entertaining the gentleman folk of the press with nonsense like this, his football team – who finished 5th last season – are mired the mediocrity of lower midtable.
