Published Add your comment

Benfica are remaining coy on the possibility of Sven-Goran Eriksson returning to the club 16 years after his spell with Portugal giants.

A delegation from Benfica including president Luis Felipe Vieira and captain Rui Costa, the club´s future sporting director, were filmed by Portuguese broadcaster SIC in a hotel in Manchester where the former England boss had also reportedly been.

But Benfica spokesman Ricardo Maia said: "We will not comment on any suggestions of a future Benfica coach now. Whether someone is or is not in Manchester to try to persuade Eriksson, we have nothing to say about it."
