Eriksson wants to return to England

SVEN-GORAN Eriksson, who was sacked as the coach of Mexico on Thursday, would welcome a move back to England, his agent said.

The 61-year-old Swede managed England from 2001 until 2006 before guiding Manchester City to ninth place last season, his sole year in charge of an English club side. Eriksson moved to Mexico last June and was sacked after the national side lost a World Cup qualifier to Honduras on Wednesday. "I personally never wanted him to take the Mexico job," Eriksson's agent Athole Still told BBC yesterday. "I would think there would be plenty of offers for him and he would love to work in England again - I know that for a fact. I would say yes, his first choice would be a good Premier League club in England where he has a challenge, I'm quite sure."
