Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson said that he has always been a Liverpool fan. Eriksson’s father is also a Liverpool fan. The Swede believes that Manchester City will retain the Premier League title this season.
Eriksson said, “I’ve always been a Liverpool fan. I can say that now, I couldn’t say that when I was in England but I was always since I was [young]. My father as well, he is 90, still a Liverpool fan. But I still think City will win it.
Eriksson who managed England from 2001-2006 rejected offers to coach the national teams of Cameroon and Iraq. The 70-year old said, “In this job you don’t have plans and you don’t go to the office and ask for a job. You’re offered a job or not. I said no thank you to the Iraq national team and no thank you to the Cameroon national team.”
When asked why he rejected those offers, Eriksson replied, “Different reasons but more like private reasons and they are two OK teams who I was rather keen, but at the end, no. If something comes up I will take it, I still want to work. In the meantime, I keep busy with the local team.”
