Sven touched by City support

Sven-Goran Eriksson thanked Manchester City fans for their remarkable show of support as he faced the growing prospect of being sacked when the season ends.

The former England boss saw his side lose 1-0 away to Liverpool on Sunday, with Fernando Torres scoring his 32nd goal of a remarkable season, but the City fans packed into the Anfield Road end maintained a barrage of support for their manager.

"The support for me was fantastic, of course it is. They have been fantastic all season, incredible," said Eriksson. "Maybe it will not affect things, I don´t know."
