Sven Goran Eriksson to be new Leicester Boss?

The Leicester City managers turnstile will rotate another click this week with former England boss Sven Goran Eriksson succeeding Paulo Sousa according to the Mirror.

Sousa lasted just nine games, but according to Pat Murphy on Radio Five Live, the wheels were set in motion for his departure even before the 6-1 defeat at Portsmouth.
Several news sources are reporting that Eriksson will turn his back on a new  £1.2 million contract with Arabian side Al Hilal to return to England, and that a two year deal with Leicester has been brokered by agent Pini Zahavi.
The Daily Mirror appears to have a hotline to the Walkers Stadium and don’t usually make a wrong call.

Sven managed the England side from 2001 to 2006 and during that time they moved up the FIFA ranking table from 17th to 5th.
Since he left the England job he has had a diverse CV managing Manchester City, Mexico, Notts County and the Ivory Coast.

There are, however, strong rumours that Martin O’Neill has been seen going in to the stadium before lunchtime today, so that story might not be over yet…
