Sven-Goran Eriksson´s agent Athole Still insists there has been "absolutely no contact" between the former England manager and the would-be Benfica president promising to bring the Swede to Lisbon for a third time.

Carlos Alberto Quaresma announced as part of his election campaign that the 58-year-old "will be my coach. It is a place where he has some great friends". But Still has dismissed the Portuguese businessman´s claims as a vote-winning publicity ploy.

Still told PA Sport: "Sven and I have had absolutely no contact at all with him (Quaresma). All I have heard about this is what I have read in the papers."
