The Manchester City manager was pictured with the west London club´s owner Roman Abramovich at their match against Manchester United on Sunday and that brief encounter has provoked rumours that Eriksson be in line to take the Stamford Bridge hotseat following the departure of Jose Mourinho.
But Eriksson insisted: "If I have a free Sunday afternoon and it´s Manchester United v Chelsea, it should almost be criminal in my job not to go and see that match. Of course I wanted to see it like most football people in the world. It has nothing to do with Abramovich or Chelsea."
