Sven unhappy with Swedish criticism

Published Add your comment

Sven-Goran Eriksson vented his fury at the Swedish media following Manchester City´s 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw against West Ham.

City boss Eriksson was forced to defend himself after making rookie Joe Hart his number one goalkeeper ahead of Kasper Schmeichel and experienced Sweden international Andreas Isaksson.

When asked by a Swedish journalist why Isaksson had not been handed a chance, Eriksson said: "Sitting in Sweden and criticising what we do at Carrington is easy but I don´t think it´s fair. What hurt me is that one newspaper said that Isaksson and myself had a fight. That´s absolute rubbish - there has never been one bad word between us."
