Manchester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson admits he was delighted to see Roy Keane turn his hand to coaching.

Now the former England boss is looking forward to a tactical battle of wits with the Irishman on Monday at Eastlands and he believes Keane can go on to have "a big career" in management after he led the club to promotion in their first season in charge.

"As a player he was fantastic. He was one of the best midfielders in the world," said Eriksson. "It is very good to see a football man like him go into coaching. I am sure he will have a big career and I wish him the best of luck."
