Eriksson eyeing top English club
Former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson
Eriksson is keen to return to coaching
Former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson is eyeing a top English club for his return to coaching.

The Swede, who parted company with England after the World Cup, said: "I need to get back into coaching."

He told The Sun: "Arsenal? Liverpool? Manchester? They're all big clubs, and any of those would be good."

Eriksson, who earned an estimated 25m during his five-year reign in charge of England, added: "It's the only thing in life I can do well."

England failed to progress past the quarter-final stage of any major competition under Eriksson.

But the Swede claimed his failure to land a major trophy was down to bad luck.

Eriksson said: "My time with England didn't have the support of lady luck.

"It's a shame we didn't achieve better results but I am still proud to have been the first foreigner on the England bench.

"They were five-and-a-half beautiful years."
