Sven-Goran Eriksson eyes Premier League return - agent

Sven-Goran Eriksson
Eriksson's agent says he is keen to work in England again

Former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson, who has been linked with the Fulham job, has "unfinished business" in the Premier League, says his agent.

The Swede is the front runner to replace Roy Hodgson after Fulham's attempt to lure Martin Jol from Ajax ended in failure.

"It's a very attractive club, not just for Sven [but there has been] no contact whatsoever," said Athole Still.

"We've know for some weeks Sven's one of the managers under consideration."

Eriksson is unattached after taking charge of Ivory Coast at the World Cup, and is thought to be keen to return to England, where he was previously involved with Notts County and Manchester City.


He was sacked as City boss in 2008 by then-owner Thaksin Shinawatra when the team were ninth in the Premier League, a decision Still claims had little to do with the team's performance on the pitch.

"He was in my view outrageously sacked from his position," he said.

"He did a first-class job with Manchester City - it was a personal non-compatibility with Dr Shinawatra which caused him to be sacked. He should still be there."
