Eriksson seeks quick start

Published Add your comment

Sven-Goran Eriksson might have been dubbed ´Ice Man´ for the lack of emotion he showed during his England days - but the new Manchester City manager has revealed he will be as nervous as anyone when his team runs out at West Ham on Saturday.

With eight new signings, none of whom have any Premier League experience, and only a month to prepare, Eriksson realises there is an element of unknown about his team. But, after almost seven years out of the day-to-day club environment, the Swede cannot wait to get started.

"I will be nervous," he said. "You can feel the fact the games are about to start. I will be able to get up on Monday and count the points everyone has got. "
