Sven Goran Eriksson Relieved of his Duties

The BBC has reported that Sven Goran Eriksson and Leicester City have parted company…

After a big spending spree in the summer Eriksson’s side had failed to make any impact in the Championship. Saturday’s abject performance at home to Millwall on Saturday was the Swede’s last in charge.
The Thai-based consortium that runs City want a place in the Premier League sooner rather than later and Sven’s time is up… 19 points from 13 games wasn’t evidence that we were heading there quickly enough.
Although it should be remembered that City were in the relegation zone when Sven arrived just over a year ago, he never managed to get us into the top six.

One response to “Sven Goran Eriksson Relieved of his Duties

  1. I am genuinely sorry that it didn’t work out. When we were good we were unplayable as Derby found out 2 weeks ago. But too often we were rolled over by ‘bullies’ that didn’t come to play football and we have to be able to deal with that. Sven doesn’t have what is needed to manage a side at this level. The big spending in the summer has set very high expectations and Sven hasn’t hit the mark often enough. Millwall on Saturday was the third of 3 very poor displays, it wasn’t a one-off.
