Fulham set sights on Sven

FULHAM have reportedly made Sven Goran-Eriksson their main target for the vacant managerial position.

Eriksson has re-emerged as a leading contender after Martin Jol ended his interest in the job on Thursday to commit his future to Ajax.

It is though the former England manager, who took charge of the Ivory Coast at the World Cup finals, would commit to London life if he was offered the job, although the African nation have expressed their desire for him to remain in charge.

The Swede, who worked well with Fulham’s chief executive, Alistair Mackintosh, during their time together at Manchester City, has ‘unfinished business’ in the Premier League according to his agent Athole Still.

“Of course he has unfinished business there. He was in my view outrageously sacked from his position at Manchester City.

Still added; “It’s a very attractive club (Fulham), not just for Sven-Goran Eriksson.

There has been no contact whatsoever. We’ve know for several weeks that Sven was one of the managers under consideration for the job.”
