Peterborough director of football Barry Fry has praised former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson for taking on a "tremendous challenge" by joining League Two side Notts County.

Eriksson will arrive at Meadow Lane after being lured by new owners Munto Finance and operate in the same role Fry fulfils at Peterborough.

Fry, who alongside manager Darren Ferguson helped Posh reach the Championship last season, told Five Live: "It's a fantastic coup. You've got to congratulate Sven for going in and having the challenge, not many ex-England managers would go to a League Two club and fancy the challenge of running the club from top to bottom and getting it into the Championship in five years."

He added: "It is a tremendous challenge. The most important thing is they keep the manager, Ian McParland, because no disrespect to Sven, he won't know what League Two players he needs to get them out of that league."
