Football News
Manchester City fans have given a lukewarm reception to reports that the club could be ready to hand former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson a return to management.

Reports on Wednesday morning claim the 59-year-old Swede has been invited to relaunch his career with City after face-to-face talks with representatives of the club´s prospective new owner, Thaksin Shinawatra.

"The supporters are 70-30 against Eriksson," said Heidi Pickup, of the Manchester City Supporters´ Trust. "He has a good record at club level but you cannot ignore all his mistakes with England."
