Manchester City have reiterated that Sven-Goran Eriksson will lead the team on a post-season tour of the Far East.

The former England manager´s future at Eastlands has been the subject of much speculation, with owner Thaksin Shinawatra expected to relieve Eriksson of his duties at the end of the current campaign and Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari widely tipped as a successor.

"The media speculation does not affect the visit," club spokesman Paul Tyrell told the Bangkok Post newspaper. "Mr Eriksson will be attending."
